‘Kokka Bunmi’ Chrysanthemum: A Very Unique Bloom

As we continue to take a closer look at the various varieties of florist mum that we grew in the garden this year, I couldn’t exclude the ‘Kokka Bunmi’ chrysanthemum. This one is truly unique, and the flower shape is definitely something that I have never seen. 

The outer petals begin to unfurl first, followed by the tight centers which are filled with petals. Unfortunately, I didn’t do a very good job of staking the flowers, so mine seemed to topple and fall over.

Even so, each plant produced several flowers. Though Kokka Bunmi chrysanthemums are generally disbudded during the growing season, I just let them grow without. I was not disappointed by the results.

What do you think?
