Helping You Become a More Successful Gardener
CHRYSANTHEMUM x morifolium( VALLEY™ SERIES)
Bred for use as seasonal potted plants, chrysanthemums in the Valley™ Series produce numerous large, daisy-like blossoms on upright, 10- to 16-inch (25 to 40 cm) stems. The single to semi-double blooms open in autumn under "natural" conditions, but greenhouse-grown plants can be forced into bloom at other seasons. Cultivars in the Valley™ Series were introduced by Yoder Brothers of Barberton, Ohio, and are available only as vegetatively propagated plants.
C. × morifolium originated in eastern Asia, where this herbaceous perennial has been bred and selected 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, Valley™ Series cultivars thrive in full sun and a fertile, well-drained growing medium. Pinch back developing flowering stems to encourage a tidier habit and heavier flowering.
