STRIPED CHRYSANTHEMUM ON THE BALCONY

Chrysanthemum is a pretty flower that I really love it.
Both of the shape and color are so interesting.
I only collect a few of this plant on my little garden.
The colorful flower cheers my grey balcony.


Just beautiful, although some of my collection finally just grow as annual.


Actually, with a good treatment, this plant will grow well as perennial.
Pruning, watering, good drainage and fertilizing make these plants grow and flowering almost all year round. 


Reader, do you grow Chrysanthemum on your garden?

  5. I have a few Chysanthemums, but they bloom here in the fall. I'm surprised you can grow them as perennials. I thought they needed a cold season to thrive and survive. Your cultivar is beautiful--with the three colors in a ring pattern. Lovely.

  6. Cantiknya Endah..saya sampai sekarang masih tercari-cari chrysunthemum kampung. Jenis lasak dan tahan cuaca. Semasa saya kecil bunga ini antara yang sangat popular dan sering ditanam. Dalam bahasa melayunya di panggil bunga kekwa.

  7. I love this selection you have here! I do so love them and often have them in containers during the fall but I have started planting them in the ground and they come up beautifully and add so much color to my garden during the cold months. Happy gardening friend! Nicole xo

    1. Thank you, Nicole. I have never known that chrysanthemum is blooming during the fall, I have thought that it blooms during the summer.

  8. Chryzantemy w Polsce też sa uprawiane, niestety one nie zimują w ogrodzie ponieważ mamy zimny klimat. Ja w swoim ogrodzie niestety nie mam tych pięknych kwiatów.
    Pozdrawiam
