Chrysanthemums Quarterback, Stadium Queen and Cheerleader were developed by the University of Nebraska in the 1960s.

Does anyone know if 'Homecoming' is also from this series?

@frankrichards16

I do not believe so, Frank. I found this info on Chrysanthemum Culture at U Nebraska pages 23-24 list the Mums developed there.

http://digitalcommons.unl.edu/cgi/viewcontent.cgi?article=47...

This link is a listing of cultivars from the National Chrysanthemum Society, USA

I did find the NCS 2013 Classification Handbook. Good info, but no history other than intro date.

That information could be put into the database but almost certainly not automatically. I don't even know how to begin getting information out of a PDF file like that.

Could it be a link in the database? A sort of "for additional info" type link? I was thinking while searching for plant info that there was so much info available, but not not necessarily specific to a single plant/cultivar.

Something like the above info would be nice to access, and could be a part of the database like you find on tropico, EOL. etc.

ATP Database

Chrysanthemum

Then have a sticky locked thread that gives the links for the National Chrysanthemum Society etc.

I brought a huge white one, and when it rebloomed they were small and yellow, why did it do this?

@keithp2012

so, when it first bloomed it was a large white and later in the year the same plant produced a small yellow flower?

Did this occur only one year, many years?

Lots of large white flowers and lots of small yellow?

what was the timing? large bloom>no bloom>small?

did both flowers have the same form? decorative, incurved, pompom...

I only had the plant for 8 months. The white flower was large and wide petals. When the flower died the plant had no flowers just leaves. Towards September it got many buds and they opened with yellow flowers, the flower petals were longer and thinner and much smaller in size. I think being there were almost 12 flowers that made them smaller but I can't understand the color change unless it was due to me repotting it in fresh soil.

So, we have this year to see what the mystery plant will do?

No the plant died during winter. But it was labeled Football Mum so I'm sure others had the same thing happen.
