Chelonopsis yagiharana  (C. moschata)   Japanese Turtlehead      Z:  5-9     Light/dappled shadePart Shade

Chelonopsis yagiharanaDespite the common name, Japanese Turtlehead is actually a Penstmon relative, not a cousin of our Turtlehead.  It's a fabulous, undemanding plant that's wonderful for the bloom color and the timing -- deep reddish mauve in late summer/early fall when that color is scarce in the garden.  The foliage clumps are neat and attractive all season.  And easy, slow spreading, undemanding plant.  AKA, C. moschata.  While some sources say C. moschata and C. yagiharana are one and the same, others, such as Cotsworld in UK, offer them as distinct species with this blooming a bit earlier - so we will also.

Soil: Rich, moist but well-drained       H:24"  W: Slowly indef.    B/M:  Deep reddish mauve/7-10

Fall Daisies - Chrysanthemum or Dendranthemas, Ajanias, Nipponanthecums, Leucanthemums

They're called, once again, Chrysanthemum BUT they're not the Fall Mum that you can find everywhere including the grocery store!  These are fabulous long lasting Perennials.  You may remember, they WERE originally called Chrysanthemums and then over a 3 year period, we were told by the folks in charge of Botanical nomenclature and classifications to change them to their new names.  Tag makers and sign makers and plant growers all gradually made the switch.   And then, about a year later after the official switch date, they changed the classification BACK to Chrysanthemums!  Argh-h-h-h-h-h!  We liked them under their previous names, Dendranthema, Ajania, etc.  People didn't confuse them with the inferior, not very perennial, Fall Mums.

Global Warming Mums - The next 5 hybrids, (hybrids of C. koreanum 'Sheffied' x c. 'Indicum') developed by Sinclair A Adam, Jr. (of famed 'River Series' Tiarellas) bloom later in the season, after other fall mums have stopped and are hardy enough to take a few frosts and continue flowering.  That means bees and other pollinators, still looking for food during a warmer fall can find it.  Oh, and also you can enjoy blooms longer!

  The next group, from a nomenclature standpoint, is still a mess!  We see them listed  as Chrysanthemum rubellum, Chrysanthemum X rubellum and Chrysanthemum koreana.  And that's on the top of the confusion of being switched from Chrysanthemums about 7 years ago to Dendranthemas about 4 years ago and now back to Chrysanthemums.  When the dust settles, if it ever does, we'll go with the last and final change ever.  (Until the next one!)   Sigh...

Chrysanthemum X rubellum 'Will's Wonderful'     Dendranthema   Fall Daisy    Z: 5-9    Full sunLight/dappled shade

Chrysanthemum X rubellum 'Will's Wonderful'Well what a wild ride 'Will' took to get to us.  Former Martha Stewart Living writer, then editor Margaret Roach (now gardening author and when famed Seneca Hills Nursery quit carrying it, she started looking for a source to continue supplying it and contacted us,  Ellen Hornig owner of Seneca Hills was kind enough to share some and according to Margaret, 'Will' now has a new home here!

What's the fuss about?  Well he IS wonderful.  Not just another ho-hum Fall Mum, he's a star-of-the-garden Fall Mum and rather than try to write about a plant that a REAL writer has already described, let's just say:  Take it away Margaret  "finally, my favorite mumís back on the market"
