Helping You Become a More Successful Gardener
CHRYSANTHEMUM x morifolium( ATLANTICO SERIES)
Hardy Chrysanthemum, Single Chrysanthemum
Atlantico Series chrysanthemums produce numerous small, yellow or orange "daisies" on densely branched, rounded, 8- to 14-inch (20 to 35 cm) plants. The 1.5-inch-wide (3.5 cm), single to semi-double blooms appear from late summer into autumn, relatively early in the fall "mum" season. These hardy, vegetatively propagated mums were developed by Dirk Pieters of Staden, Belgium.
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 in modern gardens.
Like most mums, those in the Atlantico Series thrive in full sun and a fertile, well-drained growing medium. Although typically planted as seasonal annuals, most hardy mums can be used as border perennials in USDA hardiness zones 6 through 9. Pinch back developing flowering stems to encourage a tidier habit and heavier flowering.
