Dendranthema x grandiflorum ‘Golden Yellow’

A cultivar of Dendranthema x grandiflorum Kitam. Marigold flowered chrysanthemum.  ‘A very tall, handsome, and free-flowering variety.  The flowers are early, and of a high rich yellow colour, but bronzed and orange in the buds and on their outsides.  This is one of the best to grow as a standard; and, if parted at the root and annually transplanted, succeeds very well as a herbaceous plant, especially if in a warm or sheltered situation, duly supported by a stick.’    [FC p.73/1833].  It is figured in the Botanical Register with double yellow, somewhat reflexed petals.  [BR f.4/1815].
