Chrysanthemum is a decorative perennial plant with a spectacular range of flowering types and colours. There are many different cultivars, from ones bred for the florist and as potted plants, to hardy garden varieties. The garden varieties have been bred for smaller but more numerous blooming, and to be more disease resistant. The flowers appear in late summer to autumn, and last for weeks when picked for the vase. Great plants for container growing.
Chrysanthemums like a rich, moist soil. They will grow in full sun to part shade, but will flower best in a sunny position. Pinch out the growing tips will produce a bushier plant, this can be done every three weeks or so.
Established plants can be divided after a few years. They can also be propagated by tip cuttings, and they root easily.
