Helping You Become a More Successful Gardener
CHRYSANTHEMUM x morifolium 'Discovery'
The chrysanthemum 'Discovery' produces sprays of small, yellow-green, pompon-shaped blossoms. Bloom is in autumn under "natural" conditions, but greenhouse-grown specimens can be brought into flower at other seasons. This vegetatively propagated pompon chrysanthemum is grown for cutting or for indoor floral exhibits.
Encompassing thousands of cultivars in a rainbow of floral colors, Chrysanthemum × morifolium is a long-time favorite for fall gardens and greenhouse displays. This herbaceous perennial originated in eastern Asia, where it has been cultivated and bred for many centuries. Modern mums bloom in numerous hues and shapes. The blossoms are held in clusters above clumps of fragrant, deeply lobed leaves.
Like most mums, 'Discovery' thrives in full sun and a fertile, well-drained growing medium.
