The association between various characters and the direction and magnitude of different characters towards number of flowering steins per plant in 20 genotypes of carnation grown over four locations in Himachal Pradesh revealed that number of flowering stems per plant showed significant positive corelation with number of flower buds per plant and was also positively associated with plant height, stem length and days to flower bud opening. The maximum positive direct effect on number of flowering stems per plant was shown by number of flower buds per plant while number of flower buds per stem showed maximum indirect positive effect.
