Weyrich's Apricot Chrysanthemum. When first seeing this little jewel in the J. C. Raulston Arboretum in Raleigh, NC, back in the early 1980's, I was smitten. There was a small patch of this selection carpeting the ground with its numerous single apricot colored daisy-like flowers looking upward in front of the shade house. It appeared that someone had just laid a solid carpet of flowers right there on the ground. The photos are of that very planting. I had to scan my old slides from that memorable day. It has thrived in full sun with no supplemental watering in my sister's yard and it still performs beautifully. It is native to Hokkaido, Japan, the most northerly major island. It is a superb rock garden plant growing only 2-3" high with a single 2" daisy-like flower of a soft apricot at the top of each stem from August to October.
