Chrysanthemum is an important global floriculture crop leader due to its unparalleled diversity in plant and flower colour, shape, form and blooming pattern. Although, it is suited for a wide range of climates, performance of chrysanthemum plants varies in various climatic conditions. An investigation was conducted in Rabi season at Floriculture Research Farm, ASPEE college of Horticulture and Forestry, Navsari with an object to evaluate suitable varieties under south Gujarat conditions. Among varieties, highest plant height (54.87cm) was noted in Maghi. Maximum plant spread in North-South (29.63cm) and in East-West directions (40.09cm) was observed in variety Ratlam Selection and Maghi, respectively. Biggest leaf size in terms of leaf length (5.61 cm), leaf width (4.25 cm) and petiole length (3.10 cm) was noted in Thai Chen Queen, Harvest and Flirt respectively. A thorough glance of leaf area (17.50cm2) was found maximum in Dolly White. Early flower bud initiation (63.99 days) and flower opening (71.73 days) were recorded in variety Red-2. The variety Thai Chen Queen has biggest flower (12.65 cm) and maximum flower weight (9.78g). While variety Maghi has significantly highest number of ray florets per flower (344.83). With respect to flower duration, longest duration of flower (56.67 days) was observed in Ratlam Selection. The variety Maghi was superior with respect to production of number of flowers (99.67 per plant and 1898.94 per plot) whereas, variety Thai Chen Queen noted maximum weight of flower yield (199.33 g per plant and 4330.27 g per plot).
