(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.  Space plants 2 feet apart.

    Fabulously healthy plants in 4″ pots that have extra depth for roots to form have recently arrived at my home at MuRefuge. GREAT instructions accompanied the recent arrival of 2 of these plants. I am growing these for the flowers to make a well steeped tea to aid in the reduction of my inner ocular pressure. THANK YOU!!!!!!

    Brought a plant of this earlier this year and I am blown away! The growth was vigorous, the flowers abundant and beautiful, and shes tonka tough. No pest or disease problems at all. Thinking of growing more of these and selling the tea to local cafes next year 🙂 Hopefully, she can survive the winters here in the Hudson Valley. Thank you so much

      Yes, Ju-hua does indeed respond vigorously to the right attentions. Now that its fall, our’s are covered in blossoms, you remind me to go out there and pick some tea! Richo
