Large-Flowered Chrysanths Mixed - Plant
The large-flowered Chrysanthemum blossoms and grows well in a sunny area. Prepare a large hole in good, loose soil. Plant the root ball of the Chrysanthemum at the appropriate depth in the hole. The top of the root ball should be just below ground level. Fill the hole with soil and press firmly. Water immediately after planting. The soil must have a good drainage, especially in the winter. Combine heavy soil with some sharp sand before planting to allow the rainwater to drain better. Squeezing some lime over the soil is a great idea. The soil should be nutritious and not too dry.Chrysanthemums are great in the border
Large-flowered Chrysanthemums are mainly grown as cut flowers but are also beautiful in a flowerbed or border. Since they experience a late flowering and have such huge flowers, they grab attention in a late summer border. You can combine them well with Dahlias, or you can fill an area with just several of these colourful Chrysanthemums.
You've probably seen large-flowered Chrysanthemum bouquets. These late bloomers make excellent cut flowers and last a long time in a vase.

Chrysanthemum is a large-flowered perennial that requires lots of water. Water after planting and add garden fertilizer and plant food to the irrigation water regularly. Leave just one flower bud per stem, the rest of the buds can be completely removed. This will allow even more flowers to appear, which may be slightly smaller. Chrysanthemums sometimes need extra support.Chrysanthemums can be preserved over the winter
The large-flowered Chrysanthemum can be preserved over the winter. After the first frost, cut its stems off and place them as if they were Dahlias into a box of dry compost. In spring, you can plant the Chrysanthemums back outside again, but only when there is no more frost. Protect the plants if necessary.
