Hardy Chrysanthemum

Hardy Chrysanthemum
Chrysanthemum 'Sheffield'
Synonym: Dendranthema ‘Hillside Pink Sheffield’

This flower was blooming in the garden yesterday. A real star of the fall garden it is the latest blooming perennial out there (kind of tied with Willowleaf Sunflower, which is still in flower). The Sheffield mums have already gone through several nights of freezing temperatures, a lot of wind and even our little sleet/snow storm.

Today is a travel day as we are flying out to Los Angeles for a few days of rest and relaxation. Hopefully I will be able to keep posting on this site while away from home.
