Helping You Become a More Successful Gardener
CHRYSANTHEMUM x morifolium( JENNA SERIES)
The double-flowered garden chrysanthemums in the Jenna Series produce masses of pink or purple blooms on densely branched, dome-shaped, 10- to 14-inch (25 to 35 cm) plants. The 2-inch-wide (5 cm), many-petaled blooms open in late summer and early autumn, midway in the fall "mum" season. These cultivars were introduced by Yoder Brothers of Barberton, Ohio, and are available only as vegetatively propagated plants.
The showy blooms and pungent, lobed leaves of garden chrysanthemums are staples of the autumn flower garden. These herbaceous perennials originated in eastern Asia, where they have been bred and selected for many centuries. Garden mums are customarily planted in late summer for seasonal display.
Like most garden mums, cultivars in the Jenna Series thrive in full sun and a fertile, well-drained growing medium. Although typically planted as seasonal annuals, most garden mums can be used as border perennials in USDA hardiness zones 6 through 9. Pinch back plants in late spring or early summer to encourage a neater habit and heavier fall flowering.
