Description

CHESAPEAKE™ Spider Mum

This tall growing cultivar features thin, elegantly coiled creamy white florets in a flower with enough substance to stand up to the vagaries of fall weather in the Chicago region. In order to obtain the largest of flowers, the side flower buds should be removed - a process referred to as disbudding, when they are very young. Alternatively, leaving all of the flower buds will result in a spray of smaller sized flowers. Because of it's height (up to 5 feet), staking would probably be a good idea. Plant in full sun, stake early, and provide a consistent supply of water and nutrients throughout the growing season.
