Any chance someone could ID this old Mum for me. I have had them for years and never had an ID for it.

If your's matches the picture this would be the kind you have:
Mammoth® Dark Pink Daisy (Chrysanthemum x hybridum '01-127-1'n (PPAF)
In late summer to fall, the dark pink, daisy-shaped flowers absolutely cover the dense foliage, forming a neat mound. Terrific for borders, edging, large containers and mass plantings. Improved hardiness. Developed by the University of Minnesota.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Height: 2-3'
Spread: 2-4'
Exposure: Full Sun
Hardiness Zone: 4-9
Color: Dark Pink
Deer Resistance: High

You're welcome, and I must get some myself. These will look great with the New York Aster I planted from seed this year. It'll be a year or two before they're gangbusters so that would give these some time to settle in too.

Holly, that deep pink mum is beautiful! Do you ever take any cuttings or divide it? I have only one mum color..it is a bronze mum with yellow eyes and it really does a nice job of spreading outward. I have divided it, taken cuttings and in 2012, I want to take lots of cuttings so I can use them in the Fall and also to share at plant swaps. If you ever take cuttings to bring to the next plant swap..I'd love to have a cutting or two of that color.

Mums are so easy to grow and take cuttings and divide. Have been doing it for years.
