Chrysanthemum, Chinese Bo-ju-hua (Chrysanthemum morifolium) potted plant, organic

(3 customer reviews)

$15.00

Family: Aster (Asteraceae)

Hardy to Zones 5 to 10

(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.

Potted plant, Certified Organically Grown

    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

      I’m curious to know if it over-wintered well. I am considering planting some this year in the Albany/Hudson area.

      Hi Patrick,
      The plants in the field overwintered well despite nominal flooding. The potted plants in the outdoor nursery overwintered well and are already being sent out to fulfill early orders. After those sell out, orders will be fulfilled with greenhoused plants that are growing fast and will require acclimatization to cold. That would be what you would get if you ordered now.

    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!!!!!!
