Helping You Become a More Successful Gardener
CHRYSANTHEMUM x morifolium( CHERIE SERIES)
Cherie Series chrysanthemums produce numerous small, yellow-eyed "daisies" on 8- to 12-inch (20 to 30 cm) plants. Flower colors in this series include yellow, white, pink, and bronze. The 1.5-inch-wide (4 cm), single to semi-double blooms appear in autumn under "natural" conditions. Greenhouse-grown specimens can be brought into flower at other seasons, blooming about 8 weeks after 2 weeks of "long nights" (13.5 hours or more). These vegetatively propagated mums were introduced by Yoder Brothers of Barberton, Ohio. They are grown and sold as seasonal pot plants.
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, those in the Cherie Series thrive in full sun and a fertile, well-drained growing medium. Pinch back developing stems to encourage a tidier habit and heavier flowering.
