Regional Picks: Late Season Wonders – Northeast

Fine Gardening - Issue 189

1. ‘Bolero’ Garden Mum

Name: Chrysanthemum ‘Bolero’

Zones: 5–9

Size: 2 feet tall and wide

Conditions: Full sun to partial shade; average, well-drained soil

Native Range: China, Japan, and Korea

If you’re like me and cannot get enough of the lovely late-season and hugely popular ‘Hillside Sheffield Pink’ garden mum (Chrysanthemum ‘Hillside Sheffield Pink’, Zones 5–9), then it’s time to try ‘Bolero’. You can expect scores of pretty, glowing peachy-orange daisies on well-behaved mounding plants. The blooms are ideal for using in cut-flower arrangements and attract lots of pollinators late in the season when there’s not much else around for them to eat. ‘Bolero’ garden mum combines well with other autumn favorites such as dwarf ornamental grasses and sedums. It’s also easy to divide and share with friends every two or three seasons.

2. ‘Samurai’ Toad Lily

Name: Tricyrtis formosana ‘Samurai’

Zones: 6-8

Size: 12 to 18 inches tall and 12 inches wide
