Coral Chrysanthemums

Coral Chrysanthemums
Chrysanthemum x morifolium ‘Christine’
(kris-AN-the-mum) (mor-ee-FOH-lee-um)

Here it is December and I am already raiding the archives. This mum was from the fall and I really liked its coral-red color. It bloomed fairly well even though we planted it a little late and there was 4 or 5 inches of rain in our cold October.

When I looked up information on this mum the plant patent came up. There is some interesting information included in the patent but I am only posting a link since some it is a little technical. I did kind of remind me how different growers look at a plant then us end users.

Here is a link to the patent:
United States Patent PP08988/Christine

You're not kidding about the patent language. The color is gorgeous and I want them!

I've posted a neat plant (Doll's Eyes) today that you might like. Stop by if you get a chance.
