Helping You Become a More Successful Gardener
CHRYSANTHEMUM x morifolium 'Terano'
Decorative Chrysanthemum, Terano Chrysanthemum
In mid-fall this decorative chrysanthemum produces lots of fully double, white daisies on upright, medium-sized, mounded plants.
In spring, this clump-forming herbaceous perennial develops dense, brittle stems lined with deep green, fragrant lobed leaves. It begins flowering in the middle of fall and continues for several weeks afterward. Its fully double flowers are uniform and densely cover the mounded plant. The flowers are visited by butterflies as the insects prepare to migrate, lay eggs or find shelter for winter.
Chrysanthemums prefer full sun and fertile garden loam with good drainage. Though technically perennial, most mums like this are grown as annuals. Plants are more reliably hardy if you wait to cut their spent branches back in mid-spring. Spring is also the best time to divide them, if necessary. Cushion mums are often pinched back by ¼ in late spring or early summer to encourage a neater habit and heavier flowering.
This colorful mum looks best when planted in groups and is especially welcoming in festive container plantings and tabletop displays with decorative winter squash. Pair it with airy bunch grasses, asters and silvery blue ornamental kale.
