Hardy Chrysanthemum

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

The mum season is in full swing now. It’s nice to have some of these true perennial types in the garden. The color and habit of this plant is both elegant and classy. There was no fungus on the foliage this year, which was nice despite our rainy summer and fall.

The weather forecasters totally blew the forecast this week. Each day they have been predicting ran and while it has been cloudy with a little drizzle it still hasn’t really rained. It sure has been dark and gloomy.

That hasn’t made getting some flower pictures very easy. This was shot using the 60mm/2.8 micro-nikkor lens. It hasn’t made it out of the bag recently but I really enjoyed using it yesterday.

Fragrant? I thought it was though I don't have info on it.
