Helping You Become a More Successful Gardener
CHRYSANTHEMUM x morifolium 'Sunny Cherie'( CHERIE SERIES) PP08807
The chrysanthemum 'Sunny Cherie' produces numerous small, bright yellow, bronze-tinged "daisies" on dense, mounded, 8- to 12-inch (20 to 30 cm) plants. The 1.5-inch-wide (4 cm), single to semi-double blooms open from yellow-bronze buds. This cultivar blooms in autumn under "natural" conditions, but greenhouse-grown plants will flower about 8 weeks after 2 weeks of exposure to "long nights" (13.5 hours or more). This vegetatively propagated mum was introduced by Yoder Brothers of Barberton, Ohio. It is grown and sold as a seasonal pot plant.
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 today.
Like most mums, 'Sunny Cherie' thrives in full sun and a fertile, well-drained growing medium. Pinch back developing stems to encourage a tidier habit and heavier flowering.
