Helping You Become a More Successful Gardener
CHRYSANTHEMUM x morifolium 'Kokka Senkin'
Irregular Incurve Chrysanthemum, Kokka Senkin Chrysanthemum
This "irregular incurve" florists' chrysanthemum produces large, butter-yellow, many-petaled blooms from mid- to late autumn. Each blossom has a central cushion of relatively short, infolded inner petals, surrounded by a fringe of longer, drooping petals. The blooms are borne on branching stems above 18- to 24-inch (45 to 60 cm) clumps of lobed, pungently scented leaves. Plants are sometimes "disubdded" (all side buds removed) to produce a solitary, exceptionally large bloom.
"Irregular incurve" chrysanthemums prefer full sun and a fertile, well-drained growing medium. Although technically perennial, they are usually grown as annuals for greenhouse display or cutting. Most can also be used as garden perennials in USDA Hardiness Zones 7 to 9.
