6 November 2006.This spoon type chrysanthemum was given to me three years ago in a pot. It is a very late fall bloomer. I planted it in the garden and it has come up each year in Zone 5. The height is over five feet and it is so heavily laden with flowers, that it is tied to the fence with two encircling strings. Without the strings the rain literally flattens the bush. The plant beside the chrysanthemum is my monkshood.
