An investigation on evaluation of ten genotypes of crossandra (Crossandra undulaefolia Salisb.) with respect to vegetative and yield parameters of crossandra flowers was carried out at Kittur Rani Channamma College of Horticulture, Arabhavi during 2014-2015. The results revealed that among the genotypes at 90 DAT the maximum plant height Arka Shravya (60.18 cm) stem girth Arka Shravya (5.12 mm and 6.92 mm), East-West plant spread 49.26 cm, highest North-South plant spread 49.31 cm, maximum number of primary branches ACC-1 4.73, The highest number of leaves Arka Shravya (290.17), maximum leaf area was recorded in Arka Shravya (1023.03 cm2), more number of spikes per plant and more number of flowers/spike was recorded in ACC-1 (171.53 and 61.40 respectively), Arka Ambar recorded maximum 100 flowers weight (9.68 g), significantly higher flower yield per plant and per ha (110 g/plant and 6.04 t/ha) was recorded in Arka Shravya and was on par with the genotype ACC-1 (109.00 g/plant and 5.80 t/ha).
