Helping You Become a More Successful Gardener
CHRYSANTHEMUM x morifolium( STACY™ SERIES)
Hardy Chrysanthemum, Single Chrysanthemum
Stacy™ Series chrysanthemums produce numerous purple, pink, or orange "daisies" on dense, rounded, 10- to 18- inch (20 to 45 cm) plants. Each blossom has a yellow central disk surrounded by a pale "halo". The 2-inch-wide (4.5 to 5 cm), single to semi-double blooms appear in early autumn, midway in the fall "mum" season. These hardy, vegetatively propagated mums were introduced by Yoder Brothers of Barberton, Ohio.
Chrysanthemum × morifolium is an old-time favorite for fall gardens and greenhouse displays. This herbaceous perennial originated in eastern Asia, where it has long been cultivated for its showy blooms and fragrant, deeply lobed foliage. Hundreds of mum varieties are grown in modern gardens.
Like most mums, those in the Stacy™ Series thrive in full sun and a fertile, well-drained growing medium. Although typically planted as seasonal annuals, most hardy mums can be used as border perennials in USDA hardiness zones 6 through 9. Pinch back developing flowering stems to encourage a tidier habit and heavier flowering.
