Ten years ago, I became a real lover of chrysanthemums. These wonderful flowers with light petals, green, white or yellowish, literally grab your attention - you can't take your eyes off. With them, any flower garden turns into a royal garden.

I decided to plant a couple of varieties in my country house. My chrysanthemums quickly took root and settled down, as if they always bloomed here. True, I do not spare the energy to care - I find tips for growing on the Internet and put them into practice.

Having learned about my hobby, acquaintances and strangers vying with each other began to ask for planting material. I almost never refuse: after all, in the spring, in the middle or at the end of March, it is imperative to plant bushes. This is necessary in order to achieve a more intense flowering. By the way, the flowers themselves will be larger if chrysanthemums are periodically planted.

Some varieties are capable of growing strongly over the summer, increasing the root system several times. In order for the plant not to thicken and receive more nutrition, the root must be divided into parts in spring or summer.

First, check that the planted chrysanthemums are strong and healthy, specify the variety - this will help to correctly distribute the flowers on the site. Now let's get down to the main work.

I dig in the root a little and divide it into several parts. Their number depends mainly on the age of the plant. We pluck the leaves from the middle of the bush - new ones will soon grow, and the chrysanthemum that appears will turn green with might and main. I immediately transplant the resulting cuttings to a pre-prepared place - into shallow holes with humus and water well.

You can act in another way. After digging up a bush, choose the most powerful shoots with many roots and place them in a bowl of water. It is good to distribute weak shoots to friends - I have a lot of them, and a varietal flower will grow from each with proper care.

Pour water into the recess so that the soil is moistened, and plant the shoots. The roots should be parallel to the ground. We do not deeply deepen the shoots, focus on the color of the rod - the root is always lighter. Now we sprinkle the plant, and on top it is necessary to throw a little more dry earth so that the moisture does not evaporate.

As for the undersized varieties of chrysanthemums, it is best to deal with them a little later. The fact is that in March, leaves have not yet hatched on some of the bushes, and it is difficult to separate them without damaging the root system. This can be done, for example, at the beginning of April.

Chrysanthemums belong to the genus of perennials belonging to the Asteraceae family. The homeland of flowers is located in the North-East of Europe and in Asian countries.

A large number of species were bred there.

It is interesting to know that even in the 5th century BC. growing chrysanthemums the Chinese began to study, a little later the flowers were brought to Japan, and then to the UK.

The content of the article:

Appearance

Chrysanthemum may be a herbaceous plant with a stiff stem, or it may be a shrub with erect stems. The leaves are arranged alternately, they can be whole or notched, the edges are serrated.

The leaves are green in color, but there are varieties with a lighter color. You can distinguish a chrysanthemum from an aster by the existence of a peculiar, tart smell that occurs if you break a branch of color or rub a leaf of a plant in your palms.

Varietal variety

Successes breeders were not in vain, thanks to them, today a lot of different species and varieties of this beautiful garden flower have been bred. But a unified classification system for chrysanthemums, oddly enough, is absent.

Some European countries have divided plants into 10 classes, and gardeners in the UK and North America into 15.

Classification by size of flowers and height of bushes

These include plants with a flower diameter of 10 to 25 cm, the average height of such large chrysanthemums reaches 1.2 meters. The inflorescences have a different shape.

These varieties are grown for making bouquets. Usually the large-flowered species does not tolerate wintering in the garden, but the breeders corrected this oversight by breeding some species suitable for wintering in the open field. These include:

  • Anastasia green - is a green needle flower. The bush can reach a height of one meter. Flowering begins in October. Able to winter in the garden, but you have to take care of the shelter
  • Zembla lilak - the flowers are large with wide double petals. The shrub grows up to 90 cm in height. Suitable for wintering, but most popular with the potted form
  • Tom pierce - petals are red on the outside and orange on the inside. The flowers are spherical and can reach a diameter of 22 cm, and the shrubs reach 1.5 meters in height. Flowering begins in September.

The second name for chrysanthemums is decorative... Flowers can reach a diameter of 10 to 18 cm, and a shrub up to 70 cm in height.

Can be grown directly in the garden or in a pot. Serves as an excellent decoration for a balcony or terrace.

Some plant lovers use cut flowers. For a garden, the following varieties will be most suitable, which perfectly tolerate winter in the ground:

  • Splashes of champagne - are a bush flower reaching almost a meter in height. Inflorescences are needle-like, can be light pink with yellow dusting in the middle. One of the subspecies of the variety is capable of boasting flowers of a sunny color, with an average diameter of up to 10 cm. Flowers appear in October and will last until the onset of cold weather. Chrysanthemum stays in the garden for the winter
  • The Golden Fleece - a plant with orange-yellow flowers, reaches a height of just over half a meter. The flowering period begins in the last days of September. Refers to winter-hardy varieties
  • Pink daisy - flowers are about 8 cm in diameter, and the shrub itself grows up to 90 cm.The color of the petals is dark pink. The appearance of flowers occurs in September, and the chrysanthemum will delight the gardener until the coldest days. It is also a winter-hardy variety.

In another way, this subspecies of chrysanthemums is called Korean... The flower belongs to perennial frost-resistant plants.

The shrubs reach 1.2 m in height. Inflorescences are found both simple and double with a varied number of color variations.

It is an unpretentious species, it can be planted in almost any soil. Flowering begins in September and stops with the onset of cold weather. The following varieties of beautiful chrysanthemums are suitable for wintering in the garden:

  • Etna - is a shrub reaching a height of 80 cm.The plant has purple flowers and can reach a diameter of 8 cm.The plant acquires flowers in October
  • Slavyanochka - up to 60 cm high. Flowers of pink color have a bright core. The flowering period is in September.
  • Multiflora - refers to new varieties that have gained immense popularity. Can be grown not only in the garden, but also in a variety of containers. Differs in early flowering, which occurs in August. The bushes are spherical, and the flowers are very diverse in color.

Besides this division chrysanthemums they are classified according to the shape of the inflorescences, the timing of the appearance of flowers and therefore to which species the plant belongs - perennial or annual. And if the first are the varieties listed above, then it is worth mentioning the annuals:

  • Keel or tricolor chrysanthemum plants with dense branches, fleshy stem, petiolate leaves and large inflorescences in the form of baskets are called. They can be simple, semi-double, terry. In reed flowers, the color is white, yellow, in tubular flowers - red. The most popular varieties include: flammenstahl, nordstern, cockade
  • Field or sowing plants have feathery leaves with a toothed top. In appearance, chrysanthemum is similar to chamomile, as it has white flowers and a golden core. The flowers reach 5 cm in diameter, and the average plant height is just over half a meter. Famous varieties include the following helios, stern des orients
  • Crown chrysanthemums reach a meter in height, have well-leafy branches. Cirrus leaves can be either serrated or lanceolate. Tubular flowers are green-yellow in color, and reed flowers are white. A well-known variety is the tetra of comets.

How to plant a chrysanthemum in the garden

  • - The easiest way to plant beautiful flower - this is to produce it by cuttings or divide the mother plant. However, some growers prefer seed growing. It is suitable for both perennial and annual species.
  • - After the threat of frost has passed, it is necessary to make holes in the selected area, keeping at least 20 cm between them, spill it with warm water and put 2-3 seeds in each. The holes are covered with soil and covered with foil materials to retain heat and moisture.
  • - When shoots appear, I remove the shelter, loosen the ground, and if weeds appear, they weed. For feeding, a "rainbow" or "ideal" is used for 10 days.
  • - Once the sprouts reach 10 cm in height, the strongest seedlings must be selected and left in place. The rest of the plants are planted in another flower bed. Flowering will start depending on the variety.

Seedling use

To obtain seedlings, it is necessary to prepare shallow containers and soil, which includes the following components:

You can buy land at any gardening store or make it yourself.

Note to the gardener. Before filling the ground in a container, it must be sieved and calcined, and do not forget to take care of drainage.

Broken bricks or expanded clay can play its role.

If annual chrysanthemums are planted, then their seeds must be sprinkled with a small amount of soil. Perennials do not need to be covered, you just need to press the seeds into the soil layer.

What place to choose for landing

Chrysanthemums are thermophilic and light-loving plants. Based on this, a place in the garden is determined.

It is best to choose a hill, since the flower does not tolerate stagnant water in the root system. You also need to take into account that the sun illuminates the area for at least five hours a day.

It is advisable to choose a place where there will be no strong draft.

For plants, nutrient and loamy soils with a neutral or slightly acidic indicator are suitable. Planting in sandy or clayey soil involves the introduction of organic fertilizing.

It is best to opt for vermicompost or humus.

Benefits of autumn planting

You can plant a garden beauty both in spring and autumn. The latter option has an undeniable advantage. The garden owner gets the opportunity to choose a plant by color, bud size and shrub shape.

All these criteria are not determined when purchasing autumn seedlings.

There are several simple rules according to which it is carried out, autumn landing:

  1. It is best to start work in the last days of September so that the plants have time to acclimatize. At a later date, the probability of seedlings not rooting is high.
  2. Blooming chrysanthemums have a poor survival rate, it is best to wait until the flower finishes the flowering phase.
  3. The selected seedlings should have formed root shoots. If they are not there, there is a high probability that the shrub will not be able to endure wintering.

The principle of choosing a site for planting is similar to what has already been described, but there are some subtleties.

  • - Landing holes are made to a depth of no more than 40 cm.
  • - Each hole is equipped with a good drainage system, and fertilizers must be applied to the soil.
  • - The seedling is lowered into the hole without deepening. If a tall variety is selected, then it is necessary to install supports.
  • - As soon as the planting work is completed, all the plants need to be pinched.
  • - In hot weather, special awnings are installed, which serve to protect chrysanthemums from the sun. Leave the awnings for 7 days.
  • - Between the holes, a distance of at least 30 cm must be maintained for undersized and medium-sized varieties. Tall ones will need more space of at least half a meter.

General care tips

  1. Chrysanthemums are good for moist soil, but if the water starts to stagnate, the plant will most likely die. Watering a moderate one is needed so that overdrying of earth lumps is not allowed. It is recommended to increase the amount of water only with the onset of extreme heat.
  2. In order for flowering to be full, you need to take care of dressing... It can be complex mineral fertilizers. Nitrogen is fed at the beginning of the growing season, and with the onset of autumn, chrysanthemums will need phosphorus fertilizers.
  3. An important role is given to mulching... Thanks to this layer, the flower will be saved from the heat, drying out of the root system. In the winter months, mulch serves as a shelter for frost-resistant varieties. Bark, sawdust or straw can be used as materials.
  4. Of all possible diseases, plants are most often exposed to putrefactive ailments... But this arises due to improper care. As soon as the affected plants are found, they must be immediately cut and destroyed.
  5. Special preparations are ideal protection against harmful insects. Some gardeners do not use chemicals, preferring folk methods.

The varietal variety of chrysanthemums will allow every gardener to choose a plant to their liking. These can be both annual and perennial varieties.

Some of them stand perfectly in cut form, while others serve as a magnificent decoration of the garden even with the onset of autumn.


How to protect chrysanthemum from frost

If you grow chrysanthemums by cuttings, then in October, install a frame on the site and stretch a film over it - this will be protection from frost.

Young plants are stored in a cool room at above-zero temperatures until February, then exposed to light and heat. It can be stored in the house, but then periodically you need to pinch the plants, otherwise the shoots will stretch out into growth. The preparation "Athlete" slows down the stretching of shoots.

When aphids and ticks appear:

  • use insecticidal preparations Actellik and Ratibor
  • you can try to get rid of aphids with flea drops. Dilute 2-3 drops in one glass of water and spray the plants. Repeat the procedure after 3-4 days

Types and varieties of chrysanthemums with photos and names

Despite the fact that every year breeders develop a large number of new varieties and species of chrysanthemum, there is no single classification system for this crop. In America and England, they are divided into 15 classes, and in France, Germany and China - by 10. Below will be presented several classifications, which, in the opinion of many experts, are the most successful.

Classifications by flower size and height

Chrysanthemum large-flowered - the bushes are very large, in height they can reach from 0.8 to 1.2 m, while the diameter of the inflorescences, which can have different shapes, is equal to 10-25 centimeters.

  3. Pink daisy... In fact, the color of the inflorescences is dark pink, and in diameter they reach from 60 to 80 mm, the height of the plant is from 0.6 to 0.9 m. The beginning of flowering falls on September, and it lasts almost until the very frosts. The variety winters well in the garden.

Small-flowered chrysanthemum, or Korean... This winter-hardy perennial in nature is called "oak" due to the fact that the shape of its leaf plates is similar to oak foliage. The height of the bush can vary from 0.25 to 1.2 m. During flowering, many simple and double inflorescences are formed, which can be painted in different colors. The plant is undemanding in care, it also reproduces well. In any soil, it can grow up to four years. Flowering begins in mid-September and lasts until severe frosts. The aroma of inflorescences is very similar to the smell of wormwood, in diameter they reach from 20 to 100 mm. The plant winters well in the garden:
