Helping You Become a More Successful Gardener
CHRYSANTHEMUM x morifolium( CUPERTINO SERIES)
Bred for use as seasonal pot plants, chrysanthemums in the Cupertino Series produce numerous yellow or orange, green-eyed, daisy-like blossoms on bushy, rounded, 12- to 18-inch (30 to 45 cm) plants. The 2.5- to 3-inch wide (6 to 7 cm), single to semi-double blooms open in autumn under "natural" conditions, but greenhouse-grown plants can be forced into bloom at other seasons. These vegetatively propagated cultivars were introduced and patented by Yoder Brothers of Barberton, Ohio.
C. × morifolium originated in eastern Asia, where this herbaceous perennial has been cultivated and bred for many centuries. Its many cultivars are grown for their showy blooms, which are borne above clumps of fragrant, deeply lobed leaves.
Like most mums, those in the Cupertino Series thrive in full sun and a fertile, well-drained growing medium. Pinch back developing flowering stems to encourage a tidier habit and heavier flowering.
