  • Botanical name: Chrysanthemum 'Ruby Mound'
  • Common name: Chrysanthemum

  • Plant Type: Perennial

Korean chrysanthemums were once popular for use as hardy perennials for borders and cottage garden schemes, as they are hardy and free flowering. A few of the best have survived, including Chrysanthemum ‘Ruby Mound’, which bears large double ruby red flowers from late summer into autumn. It makes an excellent cut flower.
