Research output: Contribution to journalArticle


Inheritance of fall-flowering character was investigated among progenies of interspecific crosses between evergreen azaleas. The frequency of fall-flowering seedlings was high in the crosses with Rhododendron kiusianum Makino, irrespective of cross direction. R. kiusianum is a valuable parent to give crossing opportunity twice a year.
