Comment
Glaucousness is the visual expression of waxiness and is the preferred term. Plants may be either 'waxy, glaucous' (the normal situation), 'waxy, non-glaucous' (e.g., Mentana), or 'low-wax, non-glaucous' (e.g., AUS 2598). The expression of glaucousness depends on the arrangement of wax deposits rather than the amount of wax (Johnson et al., 1983).
