Can be kept in the cellar over winter. Give soil of loam, and a moderate amount of water.
Be on guard against the aphis. If the pest appears, make prompt use of Nicotocide.

A member of the great Chrysanthemum family, bearing large, Daisylike flowers throughout the winter. There are two varieties in general use-one a pure white, the other a soft yellow. Both are desirable.
Grow in loam. Pinch the plants back, while young, to force branches. Use water freely, as the plant has a multitude of very fine fibrous roots to drink it up. Apply fertilizer at flowering-time.
