Helping You Become a More Successful Gardener
CHRYSANTHEMUM x morifolium 'Yodawn'(DAWN™ YELLOW) PP17452
This hardy, relatively early-blooming chrysanthemum produces numerous sprays of small, double, bright yellow blossoms on sturdy, upright, 9- to 12-inch (22 to 30 cm) stems. The 1 to 1.5-inch-wide (3 to 3.5 cm), many-petaled blooms appear from late summer into fall. This vegetatively propagated mum was introduced in 2005 by Yoder Brothers of Barberton, Ohio. It is distinct from the 1984 introduction 'Dawn', which has pale bronze-yellow, pompon-shaped flowers.
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, Dawn™ Yellow thrives in full sun and a fertile, well-drained growing medium. Although typically planted as a seasonal annual, it can be used as a garden perennial in USDA hardiness zones 6 through 9. Pinch back developing flowering stems to encourage a tidier habit and heavier flowering.
