Helping You Become a More Successful Gardener
CHRYSANTHEMUM x morifolium( GRACE SERIES)
Grace Series chrysanthemums produce numerous yellow or orange "daisies" on dense, rounded, 12- to 16-inch (30 to 40 cm) plants. The 2-inch-wide (4.5 to 5.5 cm), semi-double blooms appear in early autumn, midway in the fall "mum" season. Greenhouse-grown specimens will flower 7.5 weeks after 3 weeks of "long nights" (13.5 hours or more). These vegetatively propagated mums were developed by Grace Mack of New Canaan, Connecticut.
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, those in the Grace Series thrive 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.
