A couple of years ago, our dear friend Fred gave us this chrysanthemum.
We don’t have a lot of fall blooming plants, so the pale salmon-colored flowers are a very welcome addition. And they make for a pretty little bouquet to bring inside. Here they are kindly deflecting attention away from my dusty desk.
I actually clipped these mums for the yard bouquet a couple of weeks ago, but I wanted to identify their variety before I posted them. Then I never got around to figuring out how to identify them. Fortunately for my lazy and procrastinating ways, I regularly read Swarthmore College’s Scott Arboretum blog, and just last week they profiled Chrysanthemum x ‘Single Apricot Korean’ and the picture they posted looks an awful lot like my formerly unidentified mum (although their chrysanthemum appears much more impressive than mine). Thanks, Scott Arboretum!
