'MORGANA PURPLE' Decorative-flowered Garden Mum (Chrysanthemum x morifolium 'morgana orange')
A mid-season mum for added garden color all the way to light frost! 'Morgana Purple' is a decorative-flowered cushion mum growing to 24" with 3" flowers composed of grape-purple outer petals intensifying to dark-purple center petals and a compact, mounded habit.
Mums enjoy heavy feeding during their growth and development stage and respond well to periodic pinching to encourage a bushy branching habit. Stop pinching at the beginning of July except to shape plants for optimal garden displays. Most decorative garden Mums are hardy down to zone 6, but many will successfully winter over in zones 5 and even 4 if mulched during the winter and then uncovered in late winter or early spring to avoid retaining water at the plant crown.
