GUTIERREZ, Iveth; GUARIN, Sandra  e  RODRIGUEZ, Luis. Prospecting and evaluation of promising foliage species to include in bouquets. Agron. colomb. [online]. 2007, vol.25, n.1, pp.176-188. ISSN 0120-9965.

The present research was focused on documentation, prospecting, establishment, and evaluation phases of promising foliage species for their use in the cut flower industry. For such survey, a documentation phase were carried out in the National Herbarium of Colombia which allowed to identify 88 foliage potentiality species having Cundinamarca, Antioquia, Valle del Cauca and Meta departments as the zones with major potential species number. In the prospecting phase, 105 species were collected, from which 81% was successfully established in the greenhouse. Three evaluations were made in the established species, where cold room behaviour and flower vase-life were evaluated in each one. The evaluations confirmed that Dianthus caryophyllus (var. Espiga), Coprosma kikiicu, Eucalipto sp. (var. Silver Dolar), Euonymus japonicus L, Hedera madeirensis, Hedera helix (green), Ligustrum lucidum, Fotinia serrulata, Protea grandiceps, Pyracantha coccinea and Rosmarinus oficcinali presented foliage potential for bouquet manufacture having such characteristics as long, straight, and firm stems, attractive shape, dense foliage, flashy colours, brightness and consistency of leaves, cold room behaviour, flower vase shelf-life and commercial approval.

Palavras-chave : documentation; establishment; cold storage; vase-life; bouquets.
