Go Back Mammoth Mum Dark Pink Daisy

Chrysanthemum morifolium 'Dark Pink'

Plant Type: Perennials

Vibrant lavender-pink, yellow-centered flowers engulf the dense foliage creating a neat dome of color for more than a month. Bred by the University of Minnesota to withstand very cold winter temperatures. Superb for borders, edging, large containers or mass plantings. Herbaceous perennial.

Growing & Maintenance Tips:


Fertilize before new growth begins in spring. Pinch new shoots in spring when they reach 4-6 in. tall and through summer whenever they reach 3-5 in. long. Remove old foliage before new leaves emerge. Divide clumps every 2 to 3 years in early spring.
