Botanical Name

CHRYSANTHEMUM x morifolium( PUEBLO™ SERIES)

Plant Common Name

General Description

Pueblo™ Series chrysanthemums produce numerous orange or yellow, green-eyed "daisies" on bushy, dome-shaped, 10- to 16- inch (25 to 40 cm) plants. The 2.5- to 3-inch-wide (6.5 to 7.5 cm), single to semi-double blooms appear in autumn under "natural" conditions, but greenhouse-grown specimens can be brought into flower at other seasons. These vegetatively propagated mums are grown and sold as seasonal pot 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 Pueblo™ Series thrive in full sun and a fertile, well-drained growing medium. Greenhouse specimens flower approximately 8 weeks after 2 weeks of short-day treatment (10.5 hours or less). Pinch back developing flowering stems to encourage a tidier habit and heavier flowering.
