We went to Bodnant gardens in North Wales and we saw the above chrysanthemum. It was a mass of peachy coloured flowers and the perfume on it was beautiful. Could any of you let me know where we could find seeds or cuttings for this chrysanthemum. It would be much appreciated if you could.

Welcome!

Chrysanthemum Sandy is a cultivator, meaning someone selectively crossed different Chrysanthemum plants for the specific characteristics that eventually became "Sandy". The only way to reproduce it is from cuttings. Seed grown plants will not look like Sandy - there are way to many ancestors involved.

I do know this plant was originally developed in California but I have never seen it for sale.
