Quilled & Spoon Blooms (UK Classification – 10b, 10c; US Classification -10)
Like the name suggests, quill chrysanthemums have petals that are narrow, spiky and quill-like. Spoons are called such because the petals of these varietals can look somewhat like a spoon because of this cupped edge. Patricia Grace, which boasts beautiful lavender petals is an example of a quill. Atomic, a large bronze and yellow bloom with cupped petals is an example of a spoon varietal. Spoon and Quill blooms are about 3 to 5 inches in diameter. The plants grow about 3 to 4 feet tall.
