Abstract

The study was carried out to assess the variability and heritability of several traits in seven Chrysanthemum cultivars in order to identify cultivars that present valuable characteristics for Chrysanthemum breeding. Coefficients of heritability for the examined traits varied between 0.781 (plant height) and 0.922 (breadth of the leaves). This demonstrates a strong genetic determination of these traits under the experimental conditions used. Therefore, based on the results of the experiment it is worth mentioning the following cultivars: Lameet Bright for the diameter of the flowers, White Criquette and Nivalachs for the length of the petals, La Cagouille and Yellow Criquette for the breadth of the petals. These valuable cultivars can be used as genitors in hybridisations to obtain descendents with superior qualitative traits and their cultivation worth being spread.
