The present investigation was carried out to evaluate the gladiolus varieties for various flowering traits at Horticulture Research Farm, Department of Horticulture, Institute of Agricultural Sciences, Banaras Hindu University, Varanasi during 2017-18. The experiment was conducted in Randomized Block Design comprised of 31 varieties of gladiolus and replicated three times. The mean performance of gladiolus varieties was significant for all the flowering characters studied. The data concluded that cultivar Priscilla was earlier in spike emergence, days to opening 1st, 3rd and 5th florets. Cultivar Jyotsana resulted in early colour show, whereas, cv. FlevoLeguna was found late. Cultivar Shabanam produced larger length of spike and length of rachis, whereas cv. Darshan was shortest for length of spike. Maximum number of open floret at a time was observed in the cultivar Nova Lux and minimum in cv. Punjab Morning. Highest longevity of 1st floret was observed in cultivar Pink Friendship, whereas 3rd and 5th with cv. Trader Horn. Maximum diameter of 1st, 3rd and 5th floret was recorded with cultivar Pink Friendship and minimum in cv. Flevo Leguna. Cultivar Shubhangini exhibited maximum for longevity of spike which was statistically at par with cultivars Tiger Flame and Pink Friendship.
