Abstract

A study was carried out to evaluate the suitability of ornamental flowering plants for vertical gardening during 2019–2020 (10 months) the College of Horticulture, Pune, Maharashtra, India. Twenty (20) species of ornamental flowering plants, representing a wide spectrum of morphological variability were selected for the current investigation. The experiment was conducted in a Completely Randomized Design (CRD) with 20 treatments and 2 replications. Quantitative characters like plant height (cm), stem diameter(mm), plant area coverage (cm2), number of leaves, number of branches, days required for flower initiation, number of flowers, size of flowers, duration of flowering, crop duration, flower colour, growth habit, leaf type, leaf shape and consumer acceptance were considered for the current study. The result showed that all 20 plant species performed well but the ornamental flowering spp viz., Begonia spp., Dianthus caryophyllus, Torenia fournieri, Gomphrena globose and Catharanthus roseus were found to be best suited for vertical gardening during the summer season based on their overall performance.
