Chrysanthemum morifolium

Common Name(s):

  • Chrysanthemum
Phonetic Spelling
kris-AN-theh-mum mor-ih-FOH-lee-um
Description

Mainly a autumn flowering plant, Chrysanthemum morifolium will grow in the summer and spring but does not flower in those seasons. Flowers come in many colors from brownish colors to pastel and vibrant yellows. The flowers can be bi-color and also edged around the petals with another color. Leaves have a curved edge. This plant can multiply very fast in your garden beds and is certainly not just a potted plant for the autumn.

Cut back three times during the spring and summer, with the last cut on August 15, to encourage bushy, compact growth and prevent spring flowering.
