An experiment entitled “Performance of different gladiolus cultivars under Chhattisgarh plains agroclimatic zone conditions” was carried out in Horticulture Research Farm at the Department of Floriculture and Landscape Architecture, IGKV, Raipur, Chhattisgarh during 2016-17. The experiment was laid out in randomized block design (RBD) with 14 treatments (cultivars) and three replications. With respect to flowering yield and quality parameter, the cultivar Nova Lux was taken minimum number of day (60.49) to spike emergence, the cultivar American Beauty (67.09) was taken minimum number of days to first floret colour show, the minimum days to full bloom of first floret open was taken by cultivar American Beauty (68.25), the spike length was significantly higher in cultivar Saffron (78.13 cm), the length of rachis was recorded maximum in cultivar White Prosperity (69.81 cm), maximum inter nodal length was pointed in cultivar White Prosperity (3.02 cm), the maximum number of florets spike-1 was recorded in cultivar Candyman (15.03), the maximum diameter of florets was significantly higher in the cultivar Fancy Pink (10.73 cm), the cultivar Gunjan has recorded highest flowering duration (32.22 days). The maximum day to vase life (8.26) in tap water of gladiolus was observed in the cultivar Candyman.
