slightly weak allele; floral defects primarily in the first and third whorls; variable number of partially or completely fused sepals and stamens; small increase in stamen number in basal flowers; minor defects observed in the second whorl;the gynoecia displays a bulge in the apical part of the valves below the stigma and exhibits slightly decreased fertility with a corresponding decrease in silique elongation; non floral defects that alters cotyledon growth, cauline leaf development and inflorescence internode elongation (plants are shorter than wt).
