‘Sunspot’ Chrysanthemum: Disappointment or Not?

‘Sunspot’ chrysanthemum was listed on the King’s Mums website as a late blooming anemone type. Like many of the anemone types, it could be grown as a spray. Plants were supposed to have a golden center surrounded by bright red petals. Mine didn’t exactly do that…

Though the plants did grow very well and produce a lot of flowers on sprays, you can see that the color did leave a lot to be desired. Nearly every single bloom was solid yellow and I really didn’t notice much in reference to the “anemone” shape.

Even though the flowers didn’t look anything like the catalog, I did enjoy having them for use as cut flowers. The stems were strong and the vase life was good, much like the other chrysanthemums that I grew this year. However, I’m not sure that I would grow them again if I had to choose because of the very limited space in my yard.

I’d love to know what you think! Do you love these little mums? Let me know in the comments. Thanks so much for stopping by!

  1. I like potted mums on the porch in the fall, but have never tried to grow them in the garden. These aren’t my favorite, but there’s not a lot of other options in the fall.
