They are cultivated in a multiplicity of forms.
Care Tips
Cultivation Grow chrysan┬Čthemums outdoors in a sheltered site in full sun in fertile, moist but well- drained, neutral to slightly acidic soil, enriched with well-rotted manure. Apply a top-dressing of balanced fertilizer before planting. Provide support and tie stems in with soft twine as growth proceeds. Eventual height of most types is highly variable, depending on fertility and pruning practices. Water freely in dry weather, and apply a balanced liquid fertilizer every 7-10 days from midsummer until buds begin to show color. After flowering, cut back flowered stems to 6-9in. Lift crowns and store over winter in soilless potting mix in frost-free conditions. In areas experiencing only light frosts, leave in situ, apply a deep, dry winter mulch, and cut back in early spring.
Pests and Diseases Vulnerable to aphids, earwigs, nematodes, capsid bugs, leaf miners, spider mites, and white-flies. Prone to fungal rot, gray mold, powdery mildew, and white rust, Viruses may cause stunting, yellow markings, and puckering of leaves.
