Chrysanthemum General Information

Chrysanthemum are Queen of the Fall Flowers. Few plants can rival mums for beautiful fall color. They begin their show in early autumn and are handsome until a killing frost. Allow plenty of room, these plants will reach full size and flower prodigiously their first year.

Chrysanthemum Plant Care

Prefers compost-enriched well-drained soil. Good drainage is a must for successful overwintering. We tip the plants back before shipping to promote bushiness, but any strong shoot which is getting ahead of the plant should be tipped back. (Remove the growing tip.) Do not pinch after 4th of July. Can be divided in spring if needed or if center of clump dies out. Mulch for winter protection only in very cold areas and be sure to remove it before the spring thaw. Clean up old foliage in spring and cut back to new growth.
