November Plant Of The Month – Chrysanthemum

Chrysanthemums are perennials and come in a huge range of colours and sizes.  A welcome shot of colour when many plants are already dying down for the winter.  Smaller ones are great for pots.  They are great cut flowers and have a long vase life.

Some are hardy and will survive the winter in the garden in milder areas.  Others are half-hardy and will need to be lifted and put in a dry, frost-free greenhouse or shed to over winter.

They all like a sheltered sunny site.  Taller varieties may need some support.
