Introduced or Not Present

This map is based on our research. We have checked its accuracy to Level 3 ecoregions. Although this plant occurs somewhere in each of these regions, it may only occur in a small part of some or all of them.


This species is generally considered to be one of the parent species used to breed the harder garden mum or florist's daisy, Chrysanthemum √ómorifolium. C. japonicum is another possible parent. We have not found definitive work establishing which species were used as parents.

This species, as a pure species, is rarely used as an ornamental plant because its flowers are less showy.

Both the hybrids and this pure species are used medicinally, and occasionally used as food, either with people consuming pickled flowerheads, or using the flowers to brew tea.
