Chrysanthemum Bill Wade 25a
Outdoor Chrysanthemum Bloom Large white blooms. September. Intermediate for exhibition. Height 1.2m.
A first rate large flowered white intermediate which quite often shows a pink tinge. Still popular for showing due to the good form associated with this variety. Stopping strong growing plants approx. 1st April will give flowers in mid September though exhibitors would normally grow this 2 up to maximise the size. Earlier or later “stopping” (the removal of the growing tip) will result in earlier or later flowers. Reducing the number of stems allowed to flower to say 2 or 3 will result in larger flowers. Being a bloom type Chrysanthemum you will need to “disbud” as soon as the central flowering bud in each stem can be seen and the smaller side buds can be safely removed by pinching out. Be careful not to damage the main bud. This is also known as “securing the bud”.
