Helping You Become a More Successful Gardener
CHRYSANTHEMUM x morifolium(YELLOW ENERGY)
The bouquet chrysanthemum Yellow Energy produces sprays of double yellow blossoms on long stems. They appear in autumn under "natural" conditions, but greenhouse-grown specimens will flower several weeks after 3 weeks of "long nights" (13.5 hours or more). This vegetatively propagated mum is sold by florists and other cut-flower vendors.
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, Yellow Energy thrives in full sun and a fertile, well-drained growing medium.
