This plant is very hardy, attractive, and just blooms non-stop all fall. Easy to raise, and very enjoyable. I would definately recommend this plant.

A superb, autumn blooming Chrysanthemum from (not surprisingly) the Far East.

Has double pink flowers in profusion on a strong, shrub like plant.

Flowers mainly September - November

Loves a well drained soil in full sun. It needs very little maintainence, we cut it back to about 6inches after flowering here in Southern England.

This cultivar has produced several excellent sports, among them are Bronze Elegance (bronze flower) and Nantyderry Sunshine (bright yellow flower)
