CHRYSANTHEMUM 'Bronze Elegance'
Soil Type: Reasonable soil
Season of Interest: Autumn
Height x Spread: 50cm x 40cm
Commonly known as the Korean Pompon, 'Bronze Elegance' has double bronze flowers throughout autumn offering a splash of colour late in the season. The pompom flowers sit on a tight clump of erect flower stems covered in deep green foliage.
The ideal planting situation is in a sunny spot with well-drained soil. It is perfect for the middle of the border and looks fantastic alongside Chrysanthemum 'Yellow Pom Pom'.
This genus is a good addition to any border because of the late autumn flowering season. Some varieties will even bloom into December, given mild weather. All make excellent cut flowers.
There are some 20 hardy perennial species to be found growing wild in Europe and central and East Asia. There are also a great number of varieties bred for exhibition and cut flower, which need winter protection.
The hardy border varieties grow best in a sunny spot and require a free-draining soil, which is ideally fertile and slightly alkaline.
