Helping You Become a More Successful Gardener
CHRYSANTHEMUM x morifolium 'Cedar Falls' PP13068
The well-branched free-flowering garden mum 'Cedar Falls' bears large daisy blooms of red in fall. This pretty introduction adopts a pleasing cushion habit ideal for beds and planting containers and was bred by Peter Wain of Locksheath, Great Britain.
In spring, this clump-forming herbaceous perennial has dense, branched stems lined with rich green, fragrant, lobed leaves. It begins flowering in early fall and continues for several weeks afterward. Its showy red daisy flowers are large and have yellow eyes. These cover the well-branched, mounded plants and are visited by butterflies as the insects prepare for winter.
Chrysanthemums prefer full sun and fertile garden loam with good drainage. Though technically perennial, most mums are grown as annuals including 'Cedar Falls.' Plants are more reliably hardy if you wait to cut their spent branches back in mid-spring. Spring is also the best time to divide them, if necessary. Mums are often pinched back in late spring or early summer to encourage a neater habit and heavier fall flowering.
The vibrant flowers of 'Cedar Falls' will complement any colorful fall display and add a fresh touch to container plantings or indoor flower displays.
