these chrysanthemums probably were grown in Kenya or some part of Africa. They will grow here provided you can protect them from the frost over the Winter. They will grow throughout next Summer and in the Autumn will form buds and flowers in their natural season. They need long days to grow vegetatively (produce leaves and stems) and then as the days begin to get shorter the flowerbuds are initiated. They may need to be sheltered in a glasshouse if their flowering runs into October.
