From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia. The epidermis layer are covered with a thick cuticle. The anthers, for you cannot miss them, stand out in fire-engine red. Surface sections of the leaves, stomata and trichomes and longitudinal sections of the stem vessels were examined and compared with previous findings.

Plant specimens in vegetative May, and flowering stages June, were collected from Damash of Ammarloo areas of Guilan province in the North of Iran. International Journal of Botany Volume 4 1: The monoecious plant blooms in June and July with a panicle of one to fifteen fragrant flowers. The most important findings in this research were the presence of the silica prickles and silica hairs on the stem and leaf surfaces, stomata type and placentation type.

They have much better resistance to botrytis than v.

A silica prickle containing the silica hairs from the lower surface of the leaf x Identification of different cells and tissues were fulfilled on the digital images of each specimens in late June, Photo 1 is of a seedling bulb of Lilium kesselringianum2 and 3 are bulbs of Lilium monadelphum. The florets have to a varying degree from plant to ledegourii a dark green center and nectary zone, a few dark green spots and bright orange pollen as well a prominent display of papillae.

Photo 2 by David Pilling shows botrytis to which the winter growing foliage makes this species especially susceptible. The cross-section of a part of the stem containing the silica prickle x This page was last edited on 16 Julyat The cross-section of a part of the root containing the cortex and stele x The flowers are actinomorphic and attached on up to centimeter-long petioles. Six photos submitted by Darm Crook show some colour and spotting variations found in this species and a short budded inflorescence on a young plant.

Some botanists think this is not the case and that the formally classified lilies Lilium szovitsianum and Lilium kesselringianum are simply geographic variants of Lilium monadelphum. The six tepals are strongly reflexed and form a tiara of 4—6 cm in diameter. The foliage leaves are wide and short with fine hairs along margins of the upper side and veins on the lower side. Vaschlar bundles are surrounded by a sclerenchyma bundle sheath.

Above mentioned information put forth the importance of further botanical studies on this unique plant in spite of limited distribution of this plant. Lilium ciliatum is from north east Turkey. In the longitudinal sections of the stem, vessels are trachea and tracheid Fig. Suitable sections were taken for microscopic studies. The yellow bulbs are oval and reach a diameter of 5—7 centimeters; they are highly segmented, and the scales are lance-shaped.

The leaves comprise the silica hairs on the lower epidermis cells Fig. The upper and lower epidermis comprise uniseriate, almost square or oval cells. They are 10—14 centimeters long, and 1—2 centimeters wide. Sometimes the three species Lilium bosniacumLilium albanicum and Lilium jankae have been considered subspecies of Lilium carniolicum.
