Fall Mum Chrysanthemum

1 review

We have all had the experience of buying fall mums, planting them in the garden, and having a few of them come back for a year or two. This mum is pretty much the same deal. It isn't guaranteed to come back every year like a shasta daisy but in our experience, it has the best chance of over-wintering for any multi-color mum that you can grow from seed. Plants grow to a height of 2 feet and are covered with 2-inch blooms, several 100 per plant. The color range is broad. If you start in late winter you will get blooms the first Fall.

    Very small seeds but I was glad I tried them.
