Helping You Become a More Successful Gardener
CHRYSANTHEMUM x morifolium 'Yoamarillo'(AMARILLO) PP13970
Bred for use as a container plant, this "decorative chrysanthemum" produces sprays of large, double, bright-yellow blossoms on upright, 12- to 16-inch (30 to 40 cm) stems. The 4.5-inch-wide (11 cm), many-petaled blooms open in autumn under "natural" conditions, but greenhouse-grown plants can be forced into bloom at other seasons. This cultivar was introduced by Yoder Brothers of Barberton, Ohio, and is available only as vegetatively propagated plants.
Decorative (or "florists'") chrysanthemums are herbaceous perennials that originated in eastern Asia, where they have been bred and selected for many centuries. Their showy blooms are borne above clumps of pungent, lobed, medium- to dark green leaves.
Like most decorative mums, Amarillo thrives in full sun and a fertile, well-drained growing medium. Pinch back developing flowering stems to encourage a tidier habit and heavier flowering.
