The first 3 are all the same; maybe the 4th.


Hardy Chrysanthemum (Chrysanthemum 'Hillside Sheffield Pink')

I've removed the fourth one because it was clearly a description rather than a cultivar name. It had no photos or owner information, so it was simply deleted. I'll merge the others when I find more information. Do you have any credible information that the Single Apricot Korean at Longwood Gardens is the same plant as Hillside Sheffield Pink?

I came across a comment from Danita (2011) at the bottom of the 3rd one above.

I added the alternative names in her comment to the also-sold-as block and deleted that part of her comment, but she didn't name 'Single Apricot Korean.' That could be a different plant.

A little ways down in this article -
http://garden.org/ideas/view/f...

says this -

'Chrysanthemum x rubellum 'Hillside Sheffield Pink,' AKA ‘Sheffield Pink’, ‘Single Apricot’, ‘Single Apricot Korean’ or ‘Sheffield’. Starts out in early fall with medium pink buds, turning to pale apricot in October.'

I think the Korean part is an attempt to classify it as a chrysanthemum type of bloom, like chrysanthemums with single, daisy-form flowers.

Thank you for doing this research. Your explanation of the "Korean" portion of the name is quite persuasive. I'll merge this one with the others. Thumbs up
