Helping You Become a More Successful Gardener
CHRYSANTHEMUM x morifolium 'Yolake Placid'(LAKE PLACID) PP21400
Lake Placid chrysanthemum produces masses of double, white, lavender-blushed blossoms on bushy, dome-shaped, 9- to 12-inch (22 to 30 cm) plants. The 3-inch-wide (7 cm), many-petaled blooms appear in autumn under "natural" conditions, but greenhouse-grown specimens can be brought into flower at other seasons. This vegetatively propagated mum is patented by Syngenta Crop Protection AG, Basel, Switzerland. It is grown and sold as a seasonal container 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, Lake Placid thrives in full sun and a fertile, well-drained growing medium. Pinch back developing flowering stems to encourage a tidier habit and heavier flowering.
