U.S.D.A. experiments with Creole lilies to determine blooming dates: Forcing Easter lilies for the winter market



U.S.D.A. experiments with Creole lilies to determine blooming dates: Forcing Easter lilies for the winter market



Florists Rev 94(2439): 23-24



Maturity determines earliest date bulbs can be forced. There is no reliable index of maturity other than actual forcing tests. In the Beltsville area the earliest safe harvesting date for Creole lilies was the 2d week in Aug., about 6-7 weeks after blooming in the field. Bulbs stored immediately at 45-50[degree] F should bloom in Jan. and Feb. Earliest blooms from 33[degree] F storage should occur in late Feb.
