GENETIC IMPROVEMENT OF LILIUM IN ITALY
- - number of flowering plants after one year of cultivation
- - days required to flower (from bulbs)
- - number of flowers per stem
- - plants size
Of the 410 combinations of crosses carried out, only 69 families with a suitable size were considered. The 36 parents of these progenies appear interesting not only for their fertility but also for the large variability shown in the studied characters.
