Winter Display in a Border

Chrysanthemum Mount Fuji

When all the herbaceous have died down in a border, the beauty of these Japanese Chrysanthemums are the joy of a December month. These spider form Chrysanthemums are the last to flower.

A symbol of longevity and rejuvenation in the Japanese culture, this flower is very much under used in western countries perhaps because of the supposedly lack of hardiness.

Well, I’ve been keeping these wonderful plants in pots, all year round outside, quite neglected, for the last 2 years. Time to be a little more adventurous!
