Helping You Become a More Successful Gardener
CHRYSANTHEMUM x morifolium 'Zesty Yomegan'( ZESTY MEGAN™, MEGAN™ SERIES) PP13307
The double-flowered garden chrysanthemum Zesty Megan™ produces masses of deep-pink, yellow-eyed blooms on densely branched, dome-shaped, 12- to 16-inch (30 to 40 cm) plants. The 2-inch-wide (5 cm), double to semi-double blooms open in late summer and early autumn, midway in the fall "mum" season. Plants grown under artificial conditions can be "forced" into flower at other seasons, but these "out-of-season" blooms are more daisy-like. This cultivar was introduced by Yoder Brothers of Barberton, Ohio, and 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, Zesty Megan™ 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.
