Helping You Become a More Successful Gardener
This spreading perennial chrysanthemum produces charming single apricot daisies with yellow centers. It is a late season mum that begins flowering in early fall. Though clump-forming, ‘Apricot’ spreads fast so only plant it where there is plenty of space. Otherwise it will take over! When not in bloom, plants offer dark green deeply lobed foliage that is pungently aromatic when crushed.
Grow this hardy perennial in full sun and well-draining garden loam. 'Apricot' will adopt a neater habit and flower more heavily if pinched back in early summer. Do not pinch any later than the summer solstice, otherwise it won’t have time to initiate floral buds for fall.
While in bloom this mum is exceptionally beautiful. Its warm, pastel flowers pairs well with New York aster, ornamental grasses and purple Salvia leucantha, and can be cut for arrangements. This cultivar is also sold under the names 'Sheffield Pink', 'Hillside Sheffield Pink', and 'Single Apricot.'
