Chrysanthemum, Chinese Bo-ju-hua (Chrysanthemum morifolium) plant in a 4 inch pot, organic


Family: Aster (Asteraceae)

Hardy to Zones 5 to 10

(Autumn Chrysanthemum, Bo-ju-hua) Evergreen subshrub native to China, an ancient cultigen that cannot be propagated by seed.  This is a choice cultivar, flowering to 3 feet tall and equally as wide, with single-petaled flowers of cream, between 1 and 2 inches in size.  Flowering occurs in my Zone 7 garden in the fall.  Main harvest occurs around Halloween (Oct 31).  This cultivar flowers earlier than Gong-ju-hua.  Taste sweet, considered to be a superior flower for making Chrysanthemum tea. Traditional uses (TCM): one of the Chinese herbs that releases the exterior, used in treating common cold, flu, fever and heatstroke; high blood pressure, heart pain, atherosclerosis; dizziness, hearing loss, tinnitus, headache and migraine; red and swollen eyes, blurry vision; liver inflammation and toxicity; infections including staphylococcus, streptococcus and blood spirochetes.  Plant prefers sun and well-drained garden soil, frequent watering.  Space plants 2 feet apart.
