Crysanthemum standard- is there such a thing?

TinglyTingly Posts: 140


I am often drawn to those cushion crysanthemums that seem to be in homebase right until september time

I was wondering , has anyone come across one as a standard (perhaps grafted on to something else? )

Have googled but cant seem to find any

    I wouldn't think so, don't think the stems are quite woody enough to support it. You can get taller ones for border use, which are also hardy, unlike the cushions, but you have to track them down, they are currently very unfashionableimage

    There are old varieties such as 'Clara Curtis' and the 'Pennine' range and you can get seed for the Koreana ones from Chiltern.
