Helping You Become a More Successful Gardener
CHRYSANTHEMUM x morifolium 'Golden Mound'
Decorative Chrysanthemum, Hardy Chrysanthemum
Introduced in 1945, the chrysanthemum 'Golden Mound' produces numerous double golden-yellow blossoms on hardy, bushy plants. The many-petaled blooms appear from late summer to early autumn, relatively early in the fall "mum" season.
Chrysanthemum × morifolium is an old-time favorite for fall gardens and greenhouse displays. This herbaceous perennial originated in eastern Asia, where it has long been cultivated for its showy blooms and fragrant, deeply lobed foliage. Hundreds of mum varieties are grown in modern gardens.
Like most mums, 'Golden Mound' thrives in full sun and a fertile, well-drained growing medium. Although typically planted as seasonal annuals, most hardy mums can be used as border perennials in USDA hardiness zones 6 through 9. Pinch back developing flowering stems to encourage a tidier habit and heavier flowering.
