In full bloom.
Chrysanthemums, sometimes called mums or chrysanths, are a florist’s favourite, offering striking colours and various habits. It makes a welcome late summer and autumn show in borders and beds, with the added benefit of providing perfect cutting material for floral arrangements.
Chrysanthemum respond to plenty of food and moisture and should be planted into well prepared, fertile, sandy soil. They grow best and produce the most flowers if they are planted in full sunshine.
