Having grown this particular Chrysanth for nearly 20 years i feel it is time to find its name, it came from an old Victorian walled garden in North Yorkshire during a time when carrying out a major refurbishment to the owners property, can anybody help identify it

Wow, looks lovely. Could be 'Lucie's Pink' variety.

I've got one the same. Other chrysanths come and go, but this one just keeps soldiering on. :-) I got mine from a car boot sale - the seller *thought* it was pink & that's all the info I got.

Similar in form, leaf shape, and blooming habit to one that I had some 40 years ago, an heirloom from my aunt in Pennsylvania. I never found its name either, but that may give you an idea about its vintage. On mine, the ray flowers were more of a rust red, but otherwise, they could be twins.

I have a similar pale pink one that also has no name. Mine is fro an old garden in east yorkshire.

no idea on the name and no one has managed to find out for me either.
