Helping You Become a More Successful Gardener
CHRYSANTHEMUM x morifolium 'Frosty Yojeanette'(FROSTY JEANETTE) PP17539
Bright white daisies blanket the vigorous mum Frosty Jeanette in mid- to late-fall. Like many contemporary bedding mums, it has good branching and naturally adopts an upright, mounding habit. This Yoder Brothers introduction was bred by Mark A. Smith of Fort Myers, Florida.
In spring, this clump-forming herbaceous perennial has dense, branched stems lined with rich green, fragrant, lobed leaves. It begins flowering in mid-fall and continues for several weeks afterward. Its showy daisies have elongated white petals that surround a yellow eye. The fragrant flowers are numerous and attractive to bees and butterflies.
Chrysanthemums prefer full sun and fertile garden loam with good drainage. Though technically perennial, mums like this are grown as annuals. Plants are more reliably hardy if you wait to cut their spent branches back in mid-spring. Spring is also the best time to divide them, if necessary. Cushion mums are often pinched back in late spring or early summer to encourage a neater habit and heavier fall flowering.
The bright, neutral flowers of Frosty Jeanette complement any colorful fall display and are ideal for container plantings and tabletop displays.
