Helping You Become a More Successful Gardener
CHRYSANTHEMUM x morifolium 'Novare'
Decorative Chrysanthemum, Novare Chrysanthemum
Fully double orange blossoms with bronze centers cover this hardy vigorous chrysanthemum for weeks in early autumn. It adopts a perfect cushion mum habit and blends beautifully with other brightly colored bedding plants for fall.
In spring, this clump-forming herbaceous perennial develops dense stems lined with medium green, fragrant lobed leaves. It begins flowering in fall and continues for several weeks afterward. Its flowers are small, uniform and cover the plants so densely it is hard to see the foliage below. The flowers are visited by butterflies as the insects prepare to migrate, lay eggs or find shelter for winter.
Chrysanthemums prefer full sun and fertile garden loam with good drainage. Though technically perennial, most mums are grown as annuals to include ‘Novare.’ Still, this cultivar is hardier than most. Plants are more reliably hardy if you wait to cut their spent branches back in mid-spring. Spring is also the best time to divide them, if necessary.
This warm-hued mum blends well with pink diascia, blue pansies and colorful kales. It is attention-grabbing when planted in masses and welcoming in festive container plantings accented with decorative winter squash.
