My next door neighbor has the most beautiful pair of chrysanthemums planted around a tree in her tree lawn. Every year, the end of September, it begins to bloom, and goes on blooming for weeks. I never see it get any care or water, and I am sure it has been there 6 years. There has been no deadheading, dividing, or weeding. This plant appearts in the spring, grows all summer long on its own, and blooms like crazy for 4 to 6 weeks.
It is a beautiful peachy cream color. The growth is loose and large. The flowers are single-this I like from the start. The foliage is dark green, and shows no signs of damage from pests or fungus. It has been in bloom since late September.
To my mind, this is a first class perennial-low maintenance, easy to grow, and very long blooming. Should you know the name of this chrysanthemum, will you write and tell me? Years ago, I remember perennial chrysanthemums in my Mom’s yard that looked very similar to this. The closest relative I can think of is Clara Curtis. Help me out please, should you have a mind.
