Helping You Become a More Successful Gardener
CHRYSANTHEMUM x morifolium 'Detroit' PP10663
Developed for the cut flower trade, the chrysanthemum 'Detroit' produces sprays of dusty-red, yellow-eyed, daisy-like blossoms on upright, 36- to 44-inch (90 to 110 cm) plants. The 3-inch-wide (7 cm), single to semi-double blooms appear in summer and autumn under "natural" conditions, but greenhouse-grown specimens can be brought into flower at other seasons. This mum was introduced by Yoder Brothers of Barberton, Ohio, and is 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, 'Detroit' thrives in full sun and a fertile, well-drained growing medium.
