Chrysanthemum × rubellum ‘Clara Curtis’

Fall Chrysanthemum

USDA Zone: 3-9

Plant number: 1.145.250

A very old and reliable selection of Mum, that has stood the test of time. Plants form a bushy mound of light green leaves, bearing loose sprays of large, single deep pink daisies, each with a yellow eye. Pinching in June will help to keep plants bushy and compact. Early to flower. Attractive to butterflies. Divide every 2 to 3 years in spring to prevent plants from becoming old and woody. Adapts well to growing in tubs and mixed containers. Excellent for cutting. CAUTION: May cause skin allergy.
