Varieties of Chrysanthemum multicaule are prolific plants for a sunny well-drained border, covered in masses of pale, yellow, single daisy-like flowers throughout the main summer season. Pale varieties of chrysanthemums like Chrysanthemum multicaule ‘Moonlight’ are easier to team with other colours than bright golds, since they go as well with pastel shades as with hot, bright colours.
