Mature plants form large mounds 24-30″ tall and wide. An outstanding variety that exhibits vigor and good hardiness. Rabbit and drought tolerant.
Raspberry Sorbet Perennial Mum colors up the garden when little else is in bloom. Use it in perennial and cutting gardens. It adds considerable charm to cottage and informal gardens. Don’t be surprised when butterflies and other important pollinators visit its tasty flowers.
Plant in full sun or part shade. For the best flowering place in locations that receive 6 hours of sun every day. Very easy to care for, they require no pinching, pruning, or deadheading. Although, for smaller, bushier plants keep pinched until July 4. Pinch the growing tips off. You’ll end up with more flowers and more compact plants. But beware: if you pinch too late you will be cutting off the flower buds and plants will not flower.
