The flower color of ornamental plants has attracted much attention ( Qu et al., 2018 ). Research on the mechanisms of color formation in nonmodel ornamental plants can lead to a better understanding of plant color–related genetic resources

increased novel traits in flower color or form would be desirable. Induced mutations are commonly used in plant breeding to create genetic variability. Mutations can be induced by both physical and chemical agents ( van Harten, 1998 ). Fast neutron and
