The inheritance of novel flower and seedcoat patterns was studied in three parental materials: PI 390775 and `Springwater Half Runner' (SHR), which have patterned flower and seedcoat colors, and 5-593, a Florida dry bean breeding line with unpatterned purple flowers and seeds. Using crosses between 5-593 and the other two parents, an analysis of F1, F2, backcross F2, and backcross F3 data demonstrated that a single recessive allele in each of the patterned parents controlled flower and seedcoat pattern. Genetic tester stocks were used to demonstrate that the recessive gene for patterning in PI 390775 was nonallelic with C, T, and Mar, the three genes previously known to control seedcoat pattern in common bean. An allelism test between the recessive pattern genes from PI 390775 and SHR demonstrated that they were allelic and that the gene from SHR was dominant. The gene symbols stp (for the gene from PI 390775) and stp hbw (for the dominant gene from SHR) are proposed, where stp stands for stippled seedcoat pattern and the superscript letters hbw stand for half banner white.

used in landscaping because of its large, colorful, and novel flower ( Lian et al., 2016 ). Up to now, there have been about 60,000 iris cultivars in the world. However, few of them bloom in the hot summer from the middle of July to the end of August

. Phenotypic diversity plays an important role in plant breeding and selection ( Endress, 2011 ; Kumari et al., 2016 ; Santos et al., 2011 ). It is of great importance to breed new crabapple cultivars with multiple layers of petals and novel flower shapes
