There are a number of instances in which somatic mutations (though possibly  without the the intervention of herbicides) have been registered as distinct cultivars. To cite only a couple of local (Utah) examples there are Brad Kasperek's GNU and GNU AGAIN, as well as Jared Harris's BEVERLY IN WHITE (a white flowered mutant of BEVERLY SILLS).
