Helping You Become a More Successful Gardener
CHRYSANTHEMUM x morifolium( SHARP SERIES)
Decorative Chrysanthemum, Spray Chrysanthemum
Developed for the cut flower trade, chrysanthemums in the Sharp Series produce sprays of double, white or yellow, green-centered blossoms on sturdy, upright, 3- to 4-foot (90 to 120 cm) stems. The 2-inch-wide (5 cm), many-petaled blooms appear in autumn under "natural" conditions, but greenhouse-grown specimens can be brought into bloom at other seasons, with plants flowering approximately 8 weeks after 2 weeks of "long nights" (13.5 hours or more). These vegetatively propagated mums were introduced by Yoder Brothers of Barberton, Ohio.
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 Sharp Series thrive in full sun and a fertile, well-drained growing medium.
