Mum’s the word.

posted by

 The kids are back in school, summer annuals are looking tired and the cooler months are beginning to enter your mind. It’s time for pansies, violas, snapdragons, stock, nemesia, just to mention a few. Most of these plants (especially pansies and violas) make great bulb cover. But garden Mums (Chrysanthemum morifolium) are the crop that really signifies the season’s change. The form and color range of garden mums gets better and better every year. This plant is a hardy perennial that will bloom throughout the fall. Different varieties and colors of Mums become available every week.

To grow the best mums, be sure to pinch the plants back one or two times in the spring. This promotes a bushier plant with many more blooms.
