Notes for Identification: Clara curtis chrysanthemum (chrysanthemum rubellum) is a clump forming, bushy perennial, with woody stem bases. They have pinnatisect leaves. Great for herbaceous border or cutting. "the term “korean mum” is a bit of misnomer. They may have some lineage that traces back to asia but most of the early work done in developing this type of mum is credited to connecticut nurseryman and plant breeder, alex cummings, in the 1930’s. They are frequently listed as chrysanthemum rubellum but many are actually hybrids of several chrysanthemum types. In general these mums have a more vigorous habit than garden mums and are more graceful, with thinner stems and a willowy, sometimesfloppy, habit. The color range is somewhat limited to whites, pinks, soft yellows and shades of gold. If you are willing to explore he internet enthusiastically you may unearth a purple variety or two. The fact that they begin to flower in mid-october and continue ast a few frosts make them especially nice for late season color. The flowers tend to be long-pedaled daisy forms although some varieties have smaller button type daisies.
