Chrysanthemum x 'Emperor of China' (Asteraceae)
Double Pink Mum
Looking for a good, late cut flower? 'Emperor of China' begins as a tight burgundy bud, then opens to bear elegant, silvery, rose-pink double flowers in late October. This graceful beauty rises 4' tall; provide some support for long stems, or pinch back during the summer for shorter plants. Grow in full sun; enjoy the unseasonably late flowers of this rare Chrysanthemum in the company of fall asters, goldenrods and the final rebloom of Purple Coneflower.
