Helping You Become a More Successful Gardener
CHRYSANTHEMUM x morifolium 'Yoencino'(ENCINO™) PP21563
Anemone Chrysanthemum, Spoon Chrysanthemum
The chrysanthemum Encino™ produces masses of anemone-type blossoms with spoon-shaped, dusty-red petals and large, raised, greenish-yellow eyes. The bushy, rounded plants are 8 to 14 inches (20 to 35 cm) tall. The 2.5-inch-wide (6 cm) blooms open in autumn under "natural" conditions, but greenhouse-grown specimens can be forced into flower at other seasons. This mum is patented by Syngenta Crop Protection AG, Basel, Switzerland, and is available only as vegetatively propagated plants. It was developed for use as a seasonal pot plant.
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, Encino™ thrives in full sun and a fertile, well-drained growing medium. Pinch back developing flowering stems to encourage a tidier habit and heavier flowering.
