In this study, the relationships of five varieties in Perilla frutescens (L.) Britton were analyzed. All the varieties showed the same chromosome number 2n = 40, and the banding patterns of PI-DAPI staining and the FISH results of 45S rDNA probe were on the same site of the chromosome pair. The 5S rRNA gene spacers were ranged from 413 bp in P. frutescens var. purpurascens and 408 bp in var. frutescens. The varieties analyzed here were clustered into two clades according to the phylogenetic analysis. The sequence identity of 96% between var. auriculato-dentata and var. arguta suggested they could be considered the same variety.
