Notes for Identification: Source: floridata - in beds, chrysanthemums are best appreciated in large groupings, where they can be majestic when in full bloom. Almost all produce excellent flowers for use indoors, whether planted in pots or used as cut flowers. Once the bud shows color, it will definitely open indoors, as long as the plant does not dry out. In small gardens or where space is at a premium, there are other, longer blooming annuals and perennials that will give satisfaction for a longer period of time than mums. Care: mums prefer slightly acidic soil with organic components and moderate moisture, but will grow in less than ideal conditions. Pinch new growth during the late spring and summer to increase branching and prevent tall, leggy plants. Side buds may be removed to allow a larger, terminal flower to develop. (such treatment is not necessary, though; it merely results in larger but fewer flowers. ) divide or thin plants, preferably in spring before rapid growth begins or in fall after blooming. Chrysanthemums are relatively disease and pest free, although they may be attacked by spider mites in hot, dry weather. Fungal leaf spot can be a problem if plants are crowded and get poor air circulation. Overall, mums are very easy plants to grow and maintain, and they certainly reward mightily!
