Gardeners' Notes:

Someone gave me this very attractive plant. It's still in the 6" pot with colored foil around it. I assume I should plant it, right. In full or part sun? I'm in north Texas, and our summers are hot and hotter. ;+) It takes a fierce little plant to make it in full sun. Will the blooms come off when I transplant it?

Bought my first ever Pelee Chrysanthemum at Home Depot three weeks ago. Price was very attractive. It is an excellent bloomer. Still putting on blooms. But I have yet to find how to care for it.

The bicolor chrysanthemums I have in our yard have pink petals with yellow centers with the daisy-like flower being about 1" in diameter. They flower the best in full sun, but the plant grows the biggest in part-sun. Beautiful little plant. I gathered the dried flower heads and plan to plant them. This chrysanthemum flowers earlier than the traditional ones. It began around July (I think) and just now completely finished.
