This plant came originally from the sidewalk planting of the veterans housing after World War II where I lived as a child in Delmar. My mother took a cutting when we moved to the farm and I got a cutting from her when we started this homestead in '78. It is worth saving as it is one of those mums that comes back every year with a little care, unlike modern mums that you have to buy every year. I love it because it is one of the few flowers after the frost kills the rest and I love the salmon and yellow colors.
I ship a small, bare root plant for you to start your own plantings. It will spread. from the roots but is not invasive. It will get 3-4 ft tall and likes full sun but will tolerate light shade and lack of water.
All of our seed offerings were grown here. We have been seed savers for 20 years. Our seeds are packaged in original art packets, hand folded with 100% recycled paper. Instructions for growing are not on the packs but are on the listing under seed template. Books on gardening as well as many catalogs carry general information on growing seeds. I am available by e-mail or phone to answer any growing questions as well. You won't find that service from many sources of seeds. The shipping on our orders also includes the processing and handling charges which is also less or equal to most seed companies. Remember we hand pack each order and drive from the farm to the post office to ship your order. I go every other day so I also have time to garden.
