Chrysanthemum 'Clara Curtis'

Garden Mum 'Clara Curtis', Florist's Mum 'Clara Curtis', Hardy Garden Mum 'Clara Curtis', Dendranthema 'Clara Curtis'


Noted for its early blooms and glorious fall display, Chrysanthemum 'Clara Curtis' is a hardy garden mom featuring profuse, large, up to 2-3 in. wide (5-8 cm), warm pink, daisy-like flowers adorned with golden centers. Blooming from late summer to mid fall, the blossoms are borne atop stiff upright stems of deeply lobed foliage. They are produced in great quantities and literally cover the plant. This perennial forms a dense, bushy mound. Easy to grow, it is an excellent choice for sunny borders or containers, where it returns year after year, putting on a show that is unrivaled.

  • Grows up to 18-24 in. tall (45-60 cm) and 24-48 in. wide (60-120 cm).
  • Best flowering occurs in full sun in fertile, well-drained soils enriched with organic matter and general-purpose fertilizer. This Chrysanthemum tolerates a bit more shade than most. 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) to encourage free-flowering, bushy plants. Cut back to near ground level in the fall. Propagate by division in late spring or by cuttings
