Helping You Become a More Successful Gardener
CHRYSANTHEMUM x morifolium 'Yopatagonia'(PATAGONIA) PP17421
Patagonia chrysanthemum produces numerous large, double, dark purple blossoms on bushy, dome-shaped, 12- to 16-inch (30 to 40 cm) plants. The 4-inch-wide (10.5 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 was introduced by Yoder Brothers of Barberton, Ohio. 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, 'Yopatagonia' thrives in full sun and a fertile, well-drained growing medium. Greenhouse specimens flower approximately 9 weeks after 2 weeks of short-day treatment (10.5 hours or less). Pinch back developing flowering stems to encourage a tidier habit and heavier flowering. Disbudded plants produce extra-large blooms.
