The study was u der taken on genetic variability in dahlia genotypes for vegetative, floral and tubers characters of Dahlia (Dahlia variabilis) for two successive years. Forty varieties viz. Kenya Bi-colour, Gamki Sport, Croydon Gaint, Golden Glory, Duston Stone, Park Beauty, Eternity, Prime Minister, Alden Galaxy, Silver city, From by Supreme, Senior Ball, Snow Hill Rose, Doris Day, Sun Set, Robert Walker, Michael, Corton Lina, Sandhya, Powder Puff, Lord Budha, Mistral Delight, Kelvin, Rusting, Moon Place, Snow Top, Royal Rose, Sun Rise, Duccan Magic, Pompon, Alpana, Aditya, Black Out, Bara Kanchan, Kalvin Rose, Eternity Spot, Hara Gauri, Indira, Chicago and Krishna were evaluated. A wide range of variation in the mean performance of different parameters in varieties was observed for all the traits taken in the present investigations Traits like plant height, number of branches/plant number of flowers/plant, number of days required for bud emergence and its maturity, length of flower bud, number of flowers/plant, diameter of flower, number and weight of tuber etc. showed relatively larger variations, compared to other during both years of investigations.
