Chrysanthemums, better known as “mums” to their friends, are late season bloomers that really pack a pop of color in the garden. The chrysanthemum bloom season ranges from late summer into early winter depending upon your Planting Zone.

One of the easiest, low maintenance plants is the hardy chrysanthemum. Mums are common nursery and gift plants and produce vast amounts of flowers in the later season when few plants are blooming. This attractive trait, along with the rainbow of colors and variety of chrysanthemum flowers, enhances the popularity of this plant.

Keep your Mums blooming by keeping them well watered and fed. Even a perennial, hardy chrysanthemum needs a little TLC to survive winter’s harsh weather. Potted plants can be deadheaded and planted in well-worked soil with good drainage after they are finished blooming. You may choose to cut back the stems to 2 inches from the ground in late fall and we recommend mulching around them to protect them from harsh winter weather.
