This is a top class white intermediate with plenty of petal and a very tight, neat formation. Grows to 1.2m. Stopping strong growing plants approx.the 2nd week in April and allowing 4-5 flowering stems to develop will give flowers in mid September though exhibitors would normally grow this 2 -3 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”.
