Anemone Chrysanthemums

Potomac, MD(Zone 7a)

I saw a fabulous display of anemone chrysanthemums at my local botanical gardens. These fantastic flowers can be trellised, formed to topiary, and they can trail up to 3' long. Does anyone have any experience with these, or know of a supplier? Thanks.

I have grown these mums and have grown them in many different shapes. The type of mum is called a cascade and the one in the picture is called Siezan. I have this one and three more. I will be taking some into the hoop-house so they sprout up early and will be taking cuttings in January. They can be grown as trees. Just plant one cutting in a 5 gal. pot and let it grow to about 14 to 16 inches. Then pinch off all the side shoots up to ten inches and the terminal end. Then you let it grow and pinch the terminals of the side shoots after they grow two nodes. What you get is a tree that can have up to 1,000 blooms. I guess I will need to grow some this next year and take pictures and post my methods.
