Abstract:

An experiment was carried out for the assessment of different lily types of their performance with respect to growth and flowering during 2017-18 at Floriculture Research Station, Thovalai. The accessions under study showed significant variation for different characters. The experiment was laid out in a randomized block design with 8 treatments and each treatment replicated thrice. Among the lily accessions highest leaf growth has been observed in KN - 5 (Pudhugramam) with 25 leaves followed by KN - 4 (Thenthamaraikulam) with 24 leaves. Maximum leaf length (31.30 cm) and leaf breadth (31.70 cm) was observed in KN - 2 (Erachakulam). In flowering traits, among the lily accessions, the highest flower stock length (120 cm) was recorded in KN - 1 (Bhemenari) and maximum number of petals (58), petal width (3.10 cm) and flower weight (32 g) was observed in KN - 4 (Thenthamaraikulam) and petal length (8.60 cm) was observed in KN - 2 (Erachakulam). In this study, both the vegetative and flowering characters showed wider variation. The selected accessions can be used both for commercial and landscaping use under Tamil Nadu condition, also with proper management practices good quality flowers can be produced from these accessions. Hence, these accessions may be useful for further breeding program.
