I transplanted two chyrsanthemums and by mistake broke off a branch. I trimmed stems and stuck them in water in hopes I can force the buds open. Never have done this before so don't know if it will work or not.
Here is the plant that gave up the stem I used.
And below is the other one. The pots are faux ceramic and in fact the orange color had faded so I spray painted them on Saturday with a walnut color.
I like how it turned out.
The mums are to be bronze in color and you can see hints of color showing below. Not the red in the corner - that's a geranium in the front bed.
