OK, OK, Ok, I went out in the dark, in my stocking feet and retrieved the
plant stake for the Mum... it apparently a special hybrid... this is one of
the "Prophets" series by Yoder.  They call it "Raquel" and is described as
having a cushion habit, plant in well-drained, fertile soil, full sun.
Midseason bloom.

Maybe this one won't get tall like my neighbors... I really like this color
because it doesn't have any bronze in it.  I don't much care for the bronze
and brown mums and have never purchased any, but they are really coming out
with some great colors.  This year I have purchased 4 mums.  Maybe one day
they will hybridize a blue mum... now that will be great!
