Markings and texture visible only in the UV.

Wild carrot has all white flowers except for a (usually) single red/purple flower at the centre. We had expected this centre flower to look different in UV, but it doesn't.

The red/purple centre doesn't show very well here, but this sample is equally inactive in UV.
