Description

Seaton's Ruby anemone-flowered mum (Chrysanthemum 'Seaton's Ruby') is a tried-and-true, consistent award winner at chrysanthemum shows. The flower shape, described as anemone, features broad red-ray flowers with a gold reverse, while the central cushion of petal-like flowers are the same shade of red. This cultivar is not hardy outdoors in the Chicago region. Gardeners replant rooted cuttings each spring that can be obtained from specialist nurseries. Mums require full sun, moderate moisture and fertilization, and—in the case of this cultivar—staking.
