(Autumn Chrysanthemum, Bo-ju-hua) Evergreen subshrub native to China and hardy to 0 degrees F, an ancient cultigen that cannot be propagated by seed. This is a choice cultivar with medium, single-petaled flowers of cream. 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. Plant prefers sun and well-drained garden soil, frequent watering.
