General Description

Woodstock Series chrysanthemums produce sprays of large, "anemone-type" blossoms on bushy, rounded, 10- to 14-inch (25 to 35 cm) plants. The 4- to 5.5-inch-wide (10 to 13.5 cm), single to semi-double blooms have white or yellow petals and broad, yellow-green, pincushion-shaped centers. Bloom is in autumn under "natural" conditions. Greenhouse-grown specimens can be brought into bloom at other seasons, with plants flowering approximately 8 weeks after 2 weeks of "long nights" (13.5 hours or more). These vegetatively propagated mums were introduced by Yoder Brothers of Barberton, Ohio. They are grown and sold as seasonal pot plants.

Encompassing thousands of cultivars, Chrysanthemum × morifolium is a long-time favorite for fall gardens and greenhouse displays. This herbaceous perennial originated in eastern Asia, where it has been cultivated and bred for many centuries. Modern mums bloom in numerous hues and shapes. The blossoms are held in clusters above clumps of fragrant, deeply lobed leaves.

Like most mums, those in the Woodstock Series thrive in full sun and a fertile, well-drained growing medium. Disbudded plants produce extra-large blooms.
