Helping You Become a More Successful Gardener
CHRYSANTHEMUM x morifolium 'Sunny Yoolympia'( SUNNY OLYMPIA™, OLYMPIA™ SERIES) PP17479
The chrysanthemum Sunny Olympia™ produces masses of large, double, pale yellow blossoms on rounded, heat-tolerant, 10- to 14- inch (25 to 35 cm) plants. The 4-inch-wide (9.5 cm), many-petaled blooms open in autumn under "natural" conditions, but greenhouse-grown specimens can be brought into flower at other seasons. This vegetatively propagated mum was introduced by Yoder Brothers of Barberton, Ohio. It is 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, Sunny Olympia™ thrives in full sun and a fertile, well-drained growing medium. Pinch back developing flowering stems to encourage a tidier habit and heavier flowering. Disbudded plants produce extra-large blooms.
