Abstract

Chrysanthemum is classified as one of cut flowers with great variety of colors and inflorescences. This review aims at presenting the cultivars, as well as detailing the conduction, photoperiod and quality of chrysanthemum in Brazil. It concludes that the reaction time required for the induction of flowering until the early opening of the flowers varies among cultivars. The method of conduction varies according to the consumer market. The quality parameters established in the flowers are fundamental to the selection criteria.

 

Key words: Flowers, quality, production, dendranthema morifolium (Ramat.).
