(Formerly known as Chrysanthemum arcticum) This is a Canadian selection, featuring deep rose-pink single daisies with a dainty yellow centre.

Plants perform best in a warm, sunny location and are suitable for the border, rock garden, edging, or in mixed containers. Should be divided regularly to maintain vigour. A hardier and more carefree alternative to Garden Mums. This possibly should be listed under Chrysanthemum yezoense. Excellent for cutting. Registered with COPF: royalty required for propagation.
