Helping You Become a More Successful Gardener
CHRYSANTHEMUM x morifolium( VICTORIA™ SERIES)
Chrysanthemums in the Victoria™ Series bear masses of double blossoms on low, dense, mounded plants. Their pink, purple, or orange, 1.5- to 2-inch blooms appear from late summer to early fall. Cultivars in this series were introduced by Yoder Brothers of Barberton, Ohio.
The showy blooms and fragrant, deeply lobed leaves of garden chrysanthemums are familiar elements of modern gardens. These herbaceous perennials originated in eastern Asia, where they have been bred and treasured for many centuries. "Decorative" mums (such as those in the Victoria™ Series) are usually planted in late summer for seasonal display.
Like most "decorative" mums, Victoria™ Series cultivars prefer full sun and a fertile, well-drained growing medium. Although typically used as seasonal annuals, they can be employed as hardy perennials in USDA hardiness zones 6 through 9. Pinch plants back in late spring or early summer to encourage a neater habit and heavier fall flowering.
