M. Milia, S. Leoni
Thirteen cultivars of roses grafted onto Rosa indica major were tested. The highest number of floral stems was obtained from the cultivars Grand'Mère Jenny, Champs Elysées and Carina with 77,4 – 66,9 – 62,19 flowers/m2 respectively.

The lowest yield was given by the cultivars Pharaon and Rouge Meilland with 31,0 and 31,6 flowers/m2 respectively.

The best qualitative results were obtained with the cultivars Allegro - Baccara - Super Star, which gave 81%, 77,5% and 75,7% of flowers with stems longer than 60 cm.

The most satisfying overall results were obtained with Super Star, Allegro, Baccara and Carina.
