Yellow is my favorite colour of all and the show i got in my garden is definatley a kodak moment. I cannot resist myself without adding it to my site, it is a sure admirer. This is from my front yard gardening. When I bought this plant from walmart last year, it was pretty small. This year it spreaded itself and i got a gorgeuos show in my front yard in late spring(May) and in early fall (end of sept).
The benefit of having this plant is not only gorgeuos color but also very inexpensive, it spreads itslef every year and ofcourse a great perennial. Couple weeks back i seperated some roots to another vacant place in my front yard garden, so thati can enjoy it more the next spring.
Pinching chrysanthemums yields compact, bushy plants with more blooms. “Pinching” simply means removing the tips of new growth, thereby stimulating the chrysanthemums to send out side-shoots. Start in the spring when the new growth has reached 4-6″ in length. Thereafter, every 2-3 weeks, pinch the center out of any more growth when it reaches 6″. But stop pinching chrysanthemums around the beginning of summer, or else bud formation won’t occur soon enough to ensure flowering.
