Plant: Garden chrysanthemum (Chrysanthemum x morifolium) |
These were rescue plants from home depot or lowe’s. They were like 25 cents or something, because the blooms were all gone, and they looked all raggedy. Heck, they are hardy chrysanthemums. Just a little care, and they will come back every year, once established.
My mom used to raise these for wholesale, on an acre beside their house.
