An experiment entitled morphological assessment of newly developed gladiolus hybrids (Gladiolus hybridus Hort.) was conducted for flowering and corm traits under sub-tropical environment of Delhi with twenty six gladiolus hybrids along with a standard check variety at the Division of Floriculture and Landscaping, ICAR-IARI, New Delhi in randomized block design with three replications during winter season 2020-21. The results of the experiment showed that hybrids such as Smokey Lady x Mayur, High Hopes Open, P-16-1 x Eurovision, Chandni x Snow Princess and Melody Open Seedling have shown earliness in flowering and took 79.66 - 85.00 days range after planting, whereas hybrids such as Pearl Beauty x Lucky Shemrock took 110.00 day followed by Vidushi (Mutant) 109.33 day, Bindiya x Creamy Green 108.66 day, Pink Parasol Open 108.33 day, Swarnima x Viola and Canada x Green Willow each 108.00 day as compared to remaining hybrids and check variety. The maximum plant height 142.00 cm, rachis length 84.00 cm and number of florets per spike 20.66 was recorded in Bindiya x Creamy Green hybrid. The remaining hybrids such as Green Pasture x Regency, Smokey Lady x Oscar, Vidushi(Mutant) and S. Lady x Headywine and Melody Open Seedling have also showed excellent performance in terms of plant height, spike length, rachis length and number of florets per spike respectively. Moreover, hybrids such as Bindiya Creamy Green, Green Pasture x Regency, S. Lady x Oscar, AVE x Mayur, Salmon Queen Open Seedling, High Hopes Open and Vidush (Mutant) have shown more florets (7.00 -7.66) remain open at a time as compared to check variety and other hybrids, most of them also produced three or more than three corms per plant.
