Chrysanthemum Flowering Plant 'Red'
About Plant- Chrysanthemums, sometimes called mums or chrysanths, are flowering plants of the genus Chrysanthemum in the family Asteraceae. They do provide wonderful fall color and work great at filling in empty spots where summer bloomers have faded. Look for plants with lots of unopened buds to have blooms well into the fall season. Chrysanthemums mostly bloom late summer into early winter.
Chrysanthemum Flowering Plant Care
Light- Although mums can handle partial shade, you will get the fullest plants and the best blooms in full sun.
Soil- All mums prefer fertile, well-drained soil, with lots of organic matter or compost worked in. They like a soil pH slightly on the acidic side.
Water- Mums prefer evenly moist soil. Water the plant when the top 1 inch of soil begins to dry. If watering in a pot, water the soil surface using a watering can until moisture begins to drain from the bottom of the pot.
Temperature and Humidity- Chrysanthemums survive both winter and summer, but they need little extra care in summer. They like high humidity, so relative humidity is better between 70-90%.
Fertilizer- Feed the plants before flower buds form to promote healthy roots, bud development, and a vigorous plant.
Repotting- The best time to repot a chrysanthemum is when the plant is actively growing in autumn.
Propagating Chrysanthemums- You can propagate mums several ways: division, seeds, and cuttings.
