Helping You Become a More Successful Gardener
CHRYSANTHEMUM x morifolium( IRVINE™ SERIES)
Irvine™ Series chrysanthemums produce masses of single to semi-double, daisy-like blossoms on densely branched, rounded, 10- to 18-inch (25 to 45 cm) plants. The 2.5- to 3-inch-wide (6.5 to 7.5 cm) blooms are pink, purple, orange, red, or yellow, with a yellow eye. Plants naturally bloom in autumn, but greenhouse-grown specimens can be forced into flower at other seasons. Irvine™ Series mums were introduced by Yoder Brothers of Barberton, Ohio, and are available only as vegetatively propagated plants. They were developed for use as seasonal potted plants.
C. × morifolium originated in eastern Asia, where this herbaceous perennial has been cultivated and bred for many centuries. Its many cultivars are grown for their showy blooms, which are borne above clumps of fragrant, deeply lobed leaves.
Like most mums, those in the Irvine™ Series thrive in full sun and a fertile, well-drained growing medium. Pinch back developing flowering stems to encourage a tidier habit and heavier flowering.
