|norton vic chrysanthemum|
king's mums in oregon city, oregon sells cuttings of many kinds of chrysanthemums.
i learned about them from floret flowers last year, and my mom suggested i try growing them,
and gave me some money to place an order.
they are blooming like crazy now, and here are some photos of the varieties i chose.
|kotoi no kaori chrysanthemum|
|feeling green chrysanthemum|
|river city chrysanthemum|
|coral charm chrysanthemum|
|apricot courtier chrysanthemum|
|primrose mt. shasta chrysanthemum|
|jefferson park chrysanthemum|
|vienna waltz chrysanthemum|
|seaton's j'dore chrysanthemum|
|seaton's ruby chrysanthemum|
serious support is necessary.
most of the varieties need to be disbudded to the top bud. this is a big task!
but i liked how some of the ones that are smaller worked with sprays - actually quite graceful.
groundhogs like them, because they are still green when most foliage is long gone.
i grew them outside, not in a tunnel, and really lucked out with the weather this year.
here are some photos of some of my experiments with floral arranging to see what they can do.
my greens are pretty much gone, but mostly, i wanted to see how the flowers and stems work.
