This double Perennial Chrysanthemum was shared with us by Wayne Mezitt of Weston Nurseries fame. Many petaled lavender 2-3″ daisies appear in October. Stems can reach a willowy 3′, but you can have more compact plants (with more flower shoots) if you pinch back to 4-6″ in early July. Chrysanthemums are somewhat shallow rooted and spread by stolons. Plant in well drained soil, but irrigate when rainfall is limited.
