Chrysanthemum, Chinese Gong-ju-hua (Chrysanthemum morifolium) plant in a 9 inch pot, organic
Family: Aster (Asteraceae)
Hardy to Zones 5 to 10
(Autumn Chrysanthemum, Huangshan gongju) 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 small, fall to early winter blossoming flowers of yellow and cream. Strong flavor, taste sweet to slightly bitter, a superior flower for making Chrysanthemum tea. The main harvest of these flowers occurs in my Zone 7 garden around November 15, significantly later than the Bo-ju-hua cultivar. Plant prefers sun and well-drained garden soil, frequent watering. Space plants 2 feet apart.
Potted plant, Certified Organically Grown
