Native to Asia & Southeastern Europe

Rovers, which are also known as Chrysanthemum Flowers, have both annuals and perennials with standout flowers, including twelve different types of flowerhead forms to go with the striking colors. These colors include yellow, red, pink, and brown with various bloom times that go from midsummer until autumn. Seven categories of Rovers, or Chrysanthemum Flowers, have been designated that are used for different applications, including some for the garden, others for show, and some just for cutting or decoration. The leaves are typically evergreen and fragrant. They tolerate drought, heat, and humidity fairly well, making them a hardy plant. They grow well in zones 4 to 10 and are often seen in various types of fresh floral arrangements.

Chrysanthemums were first cultivated in China and were considered to be a flowering herb. The flower was also introduced in Japan around the 8th century AD, and there has since been a "Festival of Happiness" in Japan that celebrates this flower. And, in speaking of its potential medicinal purposes, the Rover’s steam and flower is thought to help in extract form by providing anti-HIV-1 and anti-bacterial properties to help with various elements.

Growing Recommendations - Chrysanthemum

Starting from seed, these flowers make great border flowers for the garden because they bloom over such a long time period. They enjoy full sun (more than six hours of direct sunlight) in slightly moist, neutral to slightly acidic, well-drained and fertile soil. The soil can have some sand to clay loam within it. These plants require more care and tending to than others, including the need to fertilize every two weeks until the buds begin to exhibit some color. The flowers also need to be cut back and receive mulch while others need to be divided up and replanted every couple of years to ensure a healthy bloom continues. Annuals and perennials like Rovers and Chrysanthemum Flowers may be fertilized by using water-soluble, quick release fertilizers; temperature controlled slow-release fertilizers; or organic fertilizers.

Certain pests to watch out for with Rovers or Chrysanthemum Flowers include spider mites, whiteflies, aphids, leaf miners, earwigs and fungi. All of these can be avoided by controlling water and moisture, keeping the garden clean and tidy like pulling weeds and debris out of beds, and using some types of pesticides or more organic treatments like introducing other types of insects that like to remove these types of pests.
