Chrysanthemum koreanum 'Sheffield'
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.

|Renee Eppley||Feb 28, 2009||I loved the salmon colored sheffield daisy that I was given. It bloomed for about 3 years, started to come up last year and only grew about 4 inches tall and never bloomed. Do you thnk it will come up this fall? do you sell this plant. It lloked just like the one on your website. We live in
Zanesville Ohio. My e-mail is email@example.com Thanks|
|Donna Thomas||May 23, 2009||We found Sheffield daisies at a nursery when we lived in Kansas in the mid 90's. They thrived and were gorgeous show stoppers every fall. We have moved from Georgia to Pennsylvania to Kansas to Arkansas and multiple locations in each state since then and taken shovelfuls of the sheffields every time leaving a trail of those plants all over and as pass-alongs to friends all over the country. They are our most beloved legacy plant--always thriving and showing off when nothing else is blooming in the fall. People drive by and slow down just to see them wherever we have lived.......|
|Tammy||Oct 21, 2009||Have you ever grown this Sheffield from seed? Any problems?
Not on purpose, but it has sprouted some volunteers in the garden. They tend to have a different appearance, especially in the flower color.
|Lee Babineaux||Oct 29, 2013||I could not e mail you directly. I have no idea about my servers. I am a gardener only.
Where can I buy the Sheffield Daisy mum Koreanum but in other colors than pink?|
I'm afraid I'm not particularly in the know on where to purchase specific plants - especially not if I don't know where you're located. I bought mine locally (and they were pink).
|Renee||Aug 14, 2017||I have a school garden in Wisconsin. It was very exciting as I had three kinds of Chrysantemums in the big raised garden. First to bloom was Clara Curtis - in early to mid-September, followed by Mary Stoker - a yellowish apricot, fast growing bloomer in early fall. Finally the beautiful spikey-petalled Hillside Pink Sheffield Mum took the stage in October. These chrysanthemums made the garden look great as they were dramatic. So many people have brown, too- far gone blooming but with these three, it was amazing and they can take the cold and sometimes lack of water! I have tried to convince people not to take down their gardens so early with these three chrysanthemums yet to present their beauty.|
|Kathy Bilton||Oct 20, 2017||Thanks for your tip about the color variations when seedlings are produced. I had a volunteer this year and it's more of a yellow than the standard pink ones. At first I thought it had to do with the light on it, but I've noticed that every time I see it, it's definitely more of a yellow and orange than pink. https://www.flickr.com/photos/67073460@N00/23965930158/in/dateposted-public/|
