Chrysanthemums

available in the Garden Center

With summer coming to a close and autumn in the air, you may find yourself recalling the many colors of the summer garden beds. Fret not, an easy way to extend the colorful displays of nature is to plant chrysanthemums. The flowers last for weeks, not days, and the sheer number of blooms per plant will convince anyone that this flower is a real jewel in the garden!

Chrysanthemums come in rainbow of color choices. From russet reds to golds and yellows, lavender and purple, peach and pink, green, white and more! Mums make the biggest statement when either planted in masses, giving their tight, mounded habit and stunning bloom cover a chance to make your beds the envy of the neighborhood. Choose colors that coordinate with your existing garden. Yellows, reds and oranges will enhance your fall decor of pumpkins and gourds, while lavenders, pinks and bold reds will stand out nicely against a background of evergreens.

Chrysanthemums also excel in decorative containers. Whether as a single planting or mixed with other fall plants like grasses, flowering cabbage or pansies, mums can add the perfect pop of color to your container garden. Whether you’re looking for a quick splash of color or a fixture for your border, choose mums for a fabulous fall display.
