A spectacular specimen in the garden, Chrysanthemum 'Apricot' is a hardy garden mum boasting a profusion of single soft apricot and peachy pink daisy flowers, 2/5 in. across (6 cm), adorned with golden yellow centers. Blooming in the fall through frost, they are borne atop a compact foliage mound of deeply divided, aromatic dark green leaves. Perfect to add warm and delicate color in the autumn landscape. Staking may be required.

  • Grows up to 24-36 in. tall (60-90 cm) and 30 in. wide (75 cm).
  • Best flowering occurs in full sun in fertile, well-drained soils enriched with organic matter and general-purpose fertilizer. Water freely in dry weather. Plant in a sheltered location to protect your Chrysanthemum from strong winds.
  • Pinch out the growing tip when the plants are 6-8 in. tall (15-20 cm) tall to encourage free-flowering, bushy plants. Cut back to near ground level in the autumn.
  • Propagate by softwood cuttings taken in spring.
  • Keep an eye out for aphids, caterpillars, leafhoppers, leafminers, plant bugs, and spider mites.
  • Chrysanthemums can be affected by several diseases, including leaf spot, powdery mildew, grey mould or Chrysanthemum white rust. Provide good air circulation and avoid shady sites that cause moisture to remain on the leaves and provide a habitat for diseases.
  • Toxic to dogs, toxic to cats, toxic to horses.
