Gardeners' Notes:

Negative rebecca101 On Jan 9, 2009, rebecca101 from Madison, WI (Zone 5a) wrote:

I did not like this plant very much - the flowers were indeed a lovely pale yellow color, but the plant overall was very messy looking. It had a scraggly sort of habit, and only a few flowers would open at a time. The overall impression was a bush covered with unattractive buds and deadheads. Needed constant deadheading to keep it looking somewhat presentable.

This chrysanthemum has lacy foliage and primrose yellow blooms with dark yellow centers. The soft yellow blooms of mix well with blue flowers.
