Abstract

Thirty small-flowered genotypes of chrysanthemum (Chrysanthemum morifolium Ramat.) were evaluated for various morphological and floral characters at Research Farm, Department of Floriculture and Landscaping, PAU, Ludhiana, during 2013-14. All the varieties suitable for different purposes like pot culture, garden decoration, cut flower, loose flower and bedding purposes were evaluated. Results revealed that the genotypes differed significantly with each other with respect to plant growth and flowering parameters like plant height, number of branches per plant, plant spread, days taken to bud appearance, and, floral traits like number of flowers per plant, diameter of flower, flowering duration, flower colour and flower type. On the basis of morphological traits, the varieties were grouped into various categories for different purposes, viz., cut flower, loose flower, bedding/garden decoration and pot culture.
