CHRYSANTHEMUM x morifolium 'Sparkle White'

Image of Chrysanthemum x morifolium 'Sparkle White'

Family

Asteraceae

Botanical Name

CHRYSANTHEMUM x morifolium 'Sparkle White'

Plant Common Name

Decorative Chrysanthemum, Sparkle White Chrysanthemum

General Description

The semi-double garden chrysanthemum 'Sparkle White' bears masses of white, yellow-eyed, daisy-like blooms in late summer and early fall on densely branched, 18-inch-tall (45 cm) plants.

The showy blooms and pungent, deeply lobed leaves of garden chrysanthemums are familiar elements of modern gardens. These herbaceous perennials originated in eastern Asia, where they have been bred and treasured for many centuries. Garden mums are usually planted in late summer for seasonal display.

Like most garden mums, 'Sparkle White' thrives in full sun and a fertile, well-drained growing medium. Although typically used as a seasonal annual, it can be employed as a hardy perennial in USDA hardiness zones 6 through 9. Pinch plants back in late spring or early summer to encourage a neater habit and heavier fall flowering.
