Chrysanthemum General Information

Chrysanthemum are Queen of the Fall Flowers. Few plants can rival mums for beautiful fall color. They begin their show in early autumn and are handsome until a killing frost. Allow plenty of room, these plants will reach full size and flower prodigiously their first year. Chrysanthemums are shipped during our spring shipping season only. Idaho has restricted all potted plant material from being shipped into Idaho at this time.

Chrysanthemum Plant Care

Mums are easy to grow. Likes a well-drained soil. Good drainage is especially important for successful overwintering. We trim the plants back before shipping to promote bushiness, but any ambitious shoot which is getting ahead of the plant should be tipped back. All growing tips should be pinched back until the 4th of July. Do not pinch after 4th of July. Can be divided in spring if needed or if center of clump is not producing new growth. Mulch for winter protection only in very cold areas and be sure to remove the mulch before the spring thaw. Soggy winter wet is very detrimental to Mums. Remove old foliage in spring or late fall. New growth comes from the roots.
