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

(8 customer reviews)


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

    Beautiful medicine

    Jenn (verified owner)

    This beauty is blooming when even the asters seem to be going to bed for the winter. It’s currently getting shaded part of the day by a fig tree, but doesn’t seem to mind about anything. It’s planted next to an olive tree and in front of ashitaba. I had a hard time keeping the slugs off of them when they were small, but they’re thriving now. The chickens ate all the new growth when it was about 12″ tall and now we have twice as many flowers! They’re so beautiful that I can’t bear to pick them. I love this medicine for my eyes. Second to none. ??
