Abstract An experiment was conducted at the Horticulture Farm, Department of Horticulture, Rajasthan College of Agriculture, Udaipur during (June 11 to February 12) season 2011-12. The 11 cultivars of chrysanthemum were used as varietal treatments during experimentation. The experiment was laid out in a randomized block design with three replications. The results revealed that all the genotypes differed significantly with respect to growth and flowering parameter. Among the cultivars tested, cultivar ‘UHFS CHRY-77’ was found best for higher number of cut spray yield (1858888.70) and suckers yield per ha. (516666.62). Among various cultivars maximum plant height (44.21 cm), number of leaves / plant (185.87) and spray length (34.56 cm) were recorded in cv. ‘UHFS CHRY-77’ at first bud appearance stage. The maximum plant spread (north to south 27.31 cm and east to west 28.34 cm respectively), sprays / plant (16.73), flower per spray (3.99), flowering duration (63.47 days), freshness of flower on plant under open field condition (17.53 days), flowers / plant (66.86), flower weight / plant (249.52 g) and benefit : cost ratio (2.14) were recorded in cv. ‘UHFS CHRY-77’. The minimum days required minimum days to first flower bud initiation and flower bud opening (71.07 and 84.42 days after transplanting, respectively) were recorded in cv. ‘Autumn Joy’. Maximum flower diameter (9.68 cm) and weight of ten flowers (37.30 g) were recorded in cv. ‘Garden Beauty’ and ‘UHFS CHRY-77’, respectively. On the basis of morphological character ‘Ajina purple’ could be grouped as pot mum cultivar.
