Description: Chrysanthemums, scientifically known as Chrysanthemum indicum, are beloved flowering plants admired for their vibrant and diverse blooms. The flowers come in a wide range of colors, including red, yellow, orange, white, pink, and purple, and in various forms, such as daisy-like, pom-pom, and spider types. The lush, green foliage provides an attractive backdrop for the stunning blooms, making chrysanthemums a popular choice for gardens, patios, and indoor displays. Native to Asia and northeastern Europe, these plants are symbols of longevity and joy, adding a touch of elegance and cheer to any space. Chrysanthemums typically grow up to 1-3 feet tall and wide, making them versatile for various decorative purposes.

Care Instructions:


  • Prefers bright, indirect light but can tolerate some direct sunlight. For best flowering, provide plenty of bright light. Avoid intense afternoon sun, which can scorch the leaves.


  • Water thoroughly when the top inch of soil is dry. Keep the soil consistently moist but not waterlogged. Reduce watering slightly in the winter months.


  • Thrives in average indoor humidity levels. They are relatively tolerant of lower humidity but benefit from occasional misting, especially in dry indoor conditions.


  • Prefers temperatures between 60°F and 70°F (15°C - 21°C). Protect from cold drafts and temperatures below 50°F (10°C).


  • Use a well-draining, rich organic potting mix. A mix containing peat moss, perlite, and compost works well to support healthy growth.


  • Feed with a balanced, water-soluble fertilizer every 2-4 weeks during the growing season (spring and summer). Reduce feeding in the fall and winter.


  • Deadhead spent blooms to encourage new flowers and maintain a tidy appearance. Pinch back the stems in early summer to promote bushier growth and more blooms.
