Helping You Become a More Successful Gardener
CHRYSANTHEMUM x morifolium 'Connie' PP10848
The lavender and white daisies of ‘Connie’ bring cheer to the early fall garden. Their petals are unusual because they are spoon-shaped, which adds even more flair to the showy blooms.
In spring, this clump-forming herbaceous perennial puts forth dense stems lined with medium green, fragrant, lobed leaves. In late spring to early summer it should be pinched back to encourage a more uniform shape and to increase the density of flower buds for fall. It begins flowering in fall and continues for several weeks afterward. Its many fragrant flowers are flattened and have long spoon-shaped petals of white with lavender tips.
Chrysanthemums prefer full sun and fertile garden loam with good drainage. Though technically perennial, most mums are grown as annuals to include ‘Connie’, though it will survive in regions with modestly cold winters.
Mass this exceptional mum in mixed borders with ornamental grasses, asters and kales. In containers it looks handsome planted with pansies and accessorized with a variety of gourds and small pumpkins.
