Dendranthema x grandiflorum ‘Changeable Pale Buff’

A cultivar of Dendranthema x grandiflorum Kitam. Marigold flowered chrysanthemum.  ‘This plant when flowering is one of the most showy and splendid in the group; but this has not been the case during the autumn of 1832; all the flowers, and in the various gardens which met the authors eye, being as it were, degenerated into almost half-coloured and spuriously quilled flowers, of more upright appearance than the large, expanded flat-petalled, variegated purple-whitish and yellow buffy ones so sharply depicted in the figure cited.  [Horticultural Transactions, London Horticultural Society, 1807].  They are of the middle season.’  [FC p.73/1833].
