Chrysanthemum


Chrysanthemum
Chrysanthemum morifolium ‘Roxanne’
(kris-AN-the-mum) (mor-ee-FOH-lee-um)

Here is a Chrysanthemum from this fall. ‘Roxanne’ was a nice white that went all complex colors when the flowers started to fade. It was a good performer that we would have again if it is available.

It is a big dig out from the snowstorm around here. Estimates are we got around 28 inches (71 cm.). It was a record 24 hour snow fall for Connecticut. At least there wasn’t a lot of wind or the drifts would have been totally unmanageable. You couldn’t even see our Jeep Grand Cherokee under the snow luckily I knew it was under the big drift so I could dig it out.

WOW! I hope you have enough supplies to weather the storm. We had a whopping 4 inches here in Dallas ;-)

Good luck!
