Annual of the Week: Garden Mum
Garden mums fill our autumn landscape with soft, warm colors just when our summer flowers are starting to fade. Bred for unique colors, roundness of shape and bloom time – early, mid, late, very late, and extremely late, garden mums tolerate cool temperatures extremely well. Selecting several varieties that bloom at different times throughout fall ensures your garden will dazzle all season long . Garden mums are considered “tender” perennials as the severity of the winter, planting time, and other factors will ultimately determine if they return next year.
Perennial of the Week: Hardy Mum
Old-fashioned, tough and truly hardy to the weather in our area, perennial chrysanthemums return year after year relieving you of planting all the time! They grow taller than garden mums and provide a magnificent natural glow and aura to any fall garden. Pollinators adore these late bloomers. Pinch back branches in the spring to create a fuller, sturdier plant with more abundant blooms. Available in shades of purple, yellow, coral, red and lavender.
“For color in fall – Keep your mums small,
4″ high – ’til the fourth of July” (do not prune after that!)
