Funnily enough, at the garden centre recently a couple were carrying very large but perfectly compact, rounded, floriferous chrysanthemum to the checkout. There they asked if the plants would look the same every year. "oh yes" was the reply. I pointed out, as Bookertoo has, that no they won't and explained why.
Those wonderful mounds of flowers simply become completely different ...leggy and unattractive. Chrysanthemums a big no for me anyway.
