Identification of distant lily hybrids on the basis of chromosomal markers
Languages of publication
A status of plants obtained from interspecific crosses of oriental lilly cultivar Marco Polo with Lilium henryi and L. henryi with cultivar Marco Polo was tested on the basis of morphology and C-band patterns of chromosomes. The positions of the secondary constrictions were found to be the best morphological markers. Also chromosomes of different C-band patterns from parental forms were chosen for hybrids identification. Four out of five plants cultivar Marco Polo x Lilium henryi and one out of four plants from reciprocal crosses were found to be true hybrids according to chromosomal markers.
