Tips for Choosing the Right Variety of Hardy Chrysanthemum Sun Perennials
The first thing you should consider before choosing a hardy chrysanthemum sun perennial for your garden is the climate. Most chrysanthemums grow best in USDA plant hardiness zones 5 through 9, making them suitable for all but the northernmost and southernmost regions of the continental United States. There is some discrepancy to this depending on the type of chrysanthemums you purchase, so always check to be sure that the variety you choose is suited to your area before ordering.
Beyond this issue of climate, you can choose whichever variety of chrysanthemum best fits your aesthetic preferences. We recommend choosing one in a color that contrasts well with your existing color palette.
How to Care for Hardy Chrysanthemum Sun Perennials
The best way to plant hardy chrysanthemum sun perennials depends on your area. In northern regions, you should plant them in the spring to give them time to establish themselves. In the south, however, you can plant them in the autumn or spring. Regardless the time of year or location, choose a planting area in full sun with well-draining soil. If possible, fertilize the area with local compost first. Once planted, water the area well until your mums are well-established.
Once established, water your chrysanthemums regularly to support healthy growth. You may also consider fertilizing in the spring to promote strong blooms. Be sure to pinch back growth to promote the plant’s health, trimming down the stems once they reach 4 to 6 inches.
