Pests and diseases
Plants may suffer from rust or mildew.

Chrysanthemums are later than some other perennials to emerge in spring so make sure they have room and do not get crowded out. May not be fully hardy in all areas - mulch with a good layer of organic matter.

Established clumps can be divided or take basal or soft cuttings which will root without heat.
