Helping You Become a More Successful Gardener
CHRYSANTHEMUM x morifolium 'Apricot Blush'( BLUSH™ APRICOT, BLUSH™ SERIES) PP09518
Pot Chrysanthemum, Single Chrysanthemum
The chrysanthemum Blush™ Apricot produces numerous large, coral-pink, greenish-eyed "daisies" on dense, mounded, 10- to 16-inch (25 to 40 cm) plants. The 5- to 5.5-inch-wide (12.5 to 14 cm), single to semi-double blooms appear in autumn under "natural" conditions, but greenhouse-grown plants will flower about 8 weeks after 2 weeks of exposure to "long nights" (13.5 hours or more). This vegetatively propagated mum was introduced by Yoder Brothers of Barberton, Ohio. It is grown and sold as a seasonal pot plant.
Chrysanthemum × morifolium is an old-time favorite for fall gardens and greenhouse displays. This herbaceous perennial originated in eastern Asia, where it has long been cultivated for its showy blooms and fragrant, deeply lobed foliage. Hundreds of mum varieties are grown today.
Like most mums, Blush™ Apricot thrives in full sun and a fertile, well-drained growing medium. Pinch back developing stems to encourage a tidier habit and heavier flowering. Disbudded plants produce extra-large blooms.
