CHRYSANTHEMUM 'Ruby Mound' AGM
Soil Type: Reasonable soil
Season of Interest: Autumn
This plant is recommended by the Royal Horticultural Society. Click here for more details.
Height x Spread: 45cm x 40cm
Sprays of ruby red semi-double flower heads appear during autumn over bushy upright stems. The deep green leaves are borne on either side of the stem.
Once 'Ruby Mound' has finished blooming we suggest you cut the stems back. Pick a sunny situation with well-drained soil and this plant will thrive in your borders and beds. Divide the plant in late spring every few years to rejuvenate.
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.
