Helping You Become a More Successful Gardener
CHRYSANTHEMUM x morifolium 'Yoplymouth'(PLYMOUTH) PP14717
Plymouth chrysanthemum produces numerous yellow-eyed blossoms with tubular, purplish-white petals that flare into purple-red, spoon-shaped tips. The bushy, rounded plants are 12 to 16 inches (30 to 40 cm) tall. The 2.5-inch-wide (6.5 cm), single to semi-double blooms open in autumn under "natural" conditions, but greenhouse-grown specimens can be brought into flower at other seasons. This "spoon" mum was introduced by Yoder Brothers of Barberton, Ohio, and is available only as vegetatively propagated plants. It was developed for use as a seasonal potted 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, those in the Duluth Series thrive in full sun and a fertile, well-drained growing medium. Greenhouse specimens flower approximately 7 weeks after 2 weeks of "long nights" (13.5 hours or more). Pinch back developing flowering stems to encourage a tidier habit and heavier flowering.
