tetraploids were less common. This ploidy level distribution was quite different from what were reported previously about the ploidy level of wild swarm lantana collections ( Spies, 1984b ), where tetraploids were the most common. This change likely reflects

there is a strong geographic structure to genetic diversity of wild populations. Wild origin explains the greatest differences between cultivars, with Hawaiian cultivars tracing back to the northern distribution of M. integrifolia , the region with the

). To have PF plants in the South American distribution of F. chiloensis subsp. chiloensis is of great interest. Original importations of these plants into Europe may have led to some of the earliest European PF F. × ananassa cultivars. Mapping

Low temperature is a major limiting factor in the distribution of woody plants and freeze injury is a leading cause of horticultural yield losses ( Ashworth, 1992 ; George et al., 1974 ; Parker, 1963 ). Resistance to freeze injury changes
