Helping You Become a More Successful Gardener
CHRYSANTHEMUM x morifolium 'Yoerin'(ERIN) PP16108
This garden chrysanthemum produces masses of small, light purple, yellow-eyed "daisies" on densely branched, dome-shaped, 8- to 12-inch (20 to 30 cm) plants. The 1.25-inch-wide (3.25 cm) blooms open in early- to mid-autumn, late in the "mum" season. This cultivar was developed by Mark A. Smith of Fort Myers, Florida, and patented by Yoder Brothers of Barberton, Ohio. It is available only as vegetatively propagated plants.
The showy blooms and pungent, lobed leaves of garden chrysanthemums are staples of the autumn flower garden. These herbaceous perennials originated in eastern Asia, where they have been bred and selected for many centuries. Garden mums are customarily planted in late summer for seasonal display.
Like most garden mums, Erin thrives in full sun and a fertile, well-drained growing medium. Although typically planted as seasonal annuals, most garden mums can be used as border perennials in USDA hardiness zones 6 through 9. Pinch back plants in late spring or early summer to encourage a neater habit and heavier fall flowering.
