CHRYSANTHEMUM x morifolium 'Yellow Nicole'( NICOLE™ SERIES) PP08757

Plant Common Name

Decorative Chrysanthemum, Hardy Chrysanthemum

General Description

Compact, hardy, and early-blooming, 'Yellow Nicole' produces numerous double, bright-yellow blossoms on densely branched, rounded, 10- to 14-inch (20 to 30 cm) plants. The 2- to 2.5-inch-wide (5.5 to 6.5 cm), many-petaled blooms appear from late summer to early autumn, early in the fall "mum" season. A member of the Nicole™ Series of hardy mums, this vegetatively propagated cultivar was introduced by Yoder Brothers of Barberton, Ohio.

Chrysanthemum × morifolium is an old-time favorite for fall gardens and greenhouse displays. This herbaceous perennial originated in eastern Asia, where it has long been cultivated for its showy blooms and fragrant, deeply lobed foliage. Hundreds of mum varieties are grown in modern gardens.

Like most mums, those in the Nicole™ Series thrive in full sun and a fertile, well-drained growing medium. Although typically planted as seasonal annuals, most hardy mums can be used as border perennials in USDA hardiness zones 6 through 9. Pinch back developing flowering stems to encourage a tidier habit and heavier flowering.
