Why are people snobbish about hardy chrysanthemums?
For me they are essential, cottage garden plants, filling the garden with colour from September through to December.
The rich warm colours of their flowers make them my favorite autumnal cut-flower.
They are so vigorous and generous with their blooms you can pick them in great armfuls for the house.
I love my Chrysanthemums best planted in the vegetable garden between the rows of red cabbages!
Chrysanthemums are easy trouble free plants and the bees and butterflies love them.
