Chrysanthemum koreanum 'Sheffield'

Chrysanthemum koreanum 'Sheffield'
Synonym(s) Chrysanthemum x rubellum; dendranthema
Common name pink daisy mum
Family asteraceae
Life cycle perennial (Z5-9)
Flowers pale pink/yellow (fall)
Size 2-3'
Light full sun
Cultural notes ordinary garden soil

Tough plant, with lots and lots of single salmon-pink, yellow-centered daisy flowers for weeks in fall, the very last of our garden perennials to come into bloom. Keeps blooming through freezes. Tolerates drought. Spreads nicely by roots, and produces some seedlings as well, although they don't always come true - good for some interesting color variations!

We left this plant behind in our Pennsylvania garden (and wish it well); we don't grow it in Houston.
