Another nice, little, early blooming chrysanthus cultivar. However, this one does have a nice decorative quality to it when the sun is not on it and the flowers are closed: the tepels have a nice basal "thumbprint" of golden brown. Divides itself relatively well, and inexpensive for mass plantings.
