Chrysanthemums were prized by Gertrude Jekyll for their fresh colour contribution to the autumn scene. This trouble-free selected form is easy to grow producing twiggy branched stems which support large sprays of open single daisies in a warm apricot pink. Capable of reviving a flagging planting later in the season they associate well with Asters and Sedums of the same period and are a good contrast to vertical grasses. An excellent cut flower for the harvest festival!

  • Garden care: Insert twiggy prunings early in the season to provide invisible and effective support.Apply a thick 5-7cm (2-3in) mulch around the base of the plant in Spring taking care not to cover the crown.
