CHRYSANTHEMUM 'Rhumba'

Family

Asteraceae

Botanical Name

CHRYSANTHEMUM 'Rhumba'( AUTUMN CRESCENDO™ SERIES)

Plant Common Name

General Description

A member of the Autumn Crescendo™ Series of hardy chrysanthemums, 'Rhumba' produces numerous peach-pink, golden-eyed blooms that open from rose-red buds. The 2-inch (5 cm), daisy-like blooms appear from late summer to fall above dense spreading clumps of deeply lobed, pungently scented leaves. Cultivars in the Autumn Crescendo™ Series were selected by Rika Bronsther of Hempstead, New York, from seedlings of the variety 'Apricot' (aka 'Sheffield Pink').

Grow this herbaceous perennial in full sun and well-drained garden loam. Cut it back heavily in late spring to encourage a bushier, more compact habit. Its late-season flowers blend well with ornamental grasses, sedums, and aconitums, and can be cut for arrangements.
