Helping You Become a More Successful Gardener
CHRYSANTHEMUM x morifolium 'Yobaton Rouge'(BATON ROUGE™) PP11283
Bred for use as a seasonal container plant, Baton Rouge™ produces numerous orange-red, yellow-streaked, daisy-like blossoms on bushy, rounded, 8- to 12-inch (20 to 30 cm) plants. The 2.5-inch-wide (6.5 cm), yellow-eyed, single to semi-double 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.
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, Baton Rouge™ thrives in full sun and a fertile, well-drained growing medium. Pinch back developing flowering stems to encourage a tidier habit and heavier flowering.
