Helping You Become a More Successful Gardener
CHRYSANTHEMUM x morifolium( DAVIS SERIES)
Developed for use in seasonal container displays, Davis Series chrysanthemums produce masses of single to semi-double, daisy-like blossoms on densely branched, rounded, 8- to 18-inch (20 to 45 cm) plants. The 2- to 3-inch-wide (5 to 7 cm) blooms are pink, purple, orange, white, or yellow, with a yellow eye. Bloom is in autumn under "natural" conditions, but greenhouse-grown plants can be forced into flower at other seasons. Davis Series mums were introduced by Yoder Brothers of Barberton, Ohio, and are available only as vegetatively propagated 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 Davis 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.
