Özet

Lilium candidum L., was cultivated and has been used for different purposes like medical, cosmetics, commercial for thousands of years. It was naturally distributed around the city of Balikesir (in Marmara region) and was investigated for its morphological, anatomical and phenological specifications during this study. Some of the morphological measurements were different from the measurements in Flora of Turkey. The measurements on bulb, stern leaves, basal leaves, bracte, pedicel, inner and outter tepals (separately), fruit, seed and pollen were given for the first time. Natural distribution of L. candidum in this region is the first record for the region and also the natural growth conditions for this species around Balikesir city were determined for the first time.
