Description

A mainstay of fall gardens for generations, chrysanthemums come in a variety of forms and sizes and almost all colors except blue. The most common are cushion mums -- low, compact mounds covered in flowers. Others reach 4 feet with single flowers and stems. There is a chrysanthemum of nearly every flower form including single, double, semi-double, spider, and anemone types. They range in size from small buttons to large pompons. Colors include yellow, gold, lavender, red, orange, white, pink, and lavender.

Special Helps
