Plant Common Name

Foxy Natasha Chrysanthemum, Single Chrysanthemum

General Description

The warm and beautiful flowers of Foxy Natasha really stand out in a crowd. Each single daisy has vibrant red petals contrasted by a bright yellow center. Like other mums, it is a heavy-flowering selection that adopts a uniform cushion habit.

In spring, this clump-forming herbaceous perennial puts forth dense stems lined with medium green, fragrant, lobed leaves. In late spring to early summer it should be pinched back to encourage a more uniform shape and to increase the density of flower buds for fall. It begins flowering in mid-fall and continues for several weeks afterward. Its many fragrant flowers are colorful and welcoming to butterflies.

Chrysanthemums prefer full sun and fertile garden loam with good drainage. Though technically perennial, most mums are grown as annuals to include Foxy Natasha, though it will survive in regions with modestly cold winters.

Mass this colorful mum in mixed borders with soft golden pansies, whites asters and kales. In containers it looks handsome accessorized with a variety of gourds and small pumpkins. Plant it where people can walk up and truly enjoy its flowers!
