Abstract: The present investigation was carried out to assess the performance of eight Gaillardia pulchella foug. Genotypes (Market, LOCAL 1, LOCAL 2, LOCAL 3, LOCAL 4, LOCAL 5, LOCAL 6 and LOCAL 7)for their growth, flowering, yield and quality characters. Significant differences were observed for all 12 characters studied. The results revealed that maximum height of plant was recorded in genotype in LOCAL 5 (70.94 cm), branches plant-1 in LOCAL 1 (20.53), plant spread 64.99 cm in East-West direction and 66.51 cm in North-South direction in LOCAL 2 and leaf area (17.81 cm2) in LOCAL 6. As regards flowering parameters viz., days to first flower bud initiation (64.20 days), days to 50 per cent flowering (76.73 days) and days to first harvesting of flowers (84.73 days) were recorded early in genotype Market. However, significantly maximum days to opening of flower (8.93 days), flowering span (52.26 days) was recorded in genotype LOCAL 4. As regards yield and quality parameters viz., yield of flower ha-1 LOCAL 2 (65.80 q), weight of flower ha-1 LOCAL 2 (4.8 g), shelf life LOCAL 2 (3.63 days).
