Helping You Become a More Successful Gardener
CHRYSANTHEMUM x morifolium 'Dark Yoelmira'( DARK ELMIRA, ELMIRA SERIES) PP14960
The decorative chrysanthemum Dark Elmira produces numerous sprays of small, double purple blossoms on densely branched, rounded, 10- to 14-inch (25 to 35 cm) plants. The 1.5-inch-wide (3 cm), many-petaled blooms open in autumn under "natural" conditions, but greenhouse-grown plants can be forced into flower at other seasons. Elmira Series mums were introduced by Yoder Brothers of Barberton, Ohio, and are available only as vegetatively propagated plants. They were developed for use as seasonal potted plants.
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 Elmira 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.
