Fall Flowering Mums

Is that a nip in the air this morning? First sign of fall has arrived at Dufferin Garden Centre!

Fall flowering chrysanthemums are a wonderful accent in the garden with colours of pinks, purples, red, ambers and gold. These are sometimes considered annuals in our zone 5 gardens but with extra winter mulch to protect them… you might get lucky!

Light Conditions: Full sunlight and regular waterings but a well-drained site.

Flower Power: Tight, mounded habit and profusion of blooms are perfect for mass planting. They will continue blooming until well after the first frost and appreciate a monthly fertilizing.

Design Tip: try mixing them in a planter with ornamental grass, flowering kale and coral bells and place it on your front porch.

  • Rabbits and deer don’t usually eat the mum’s fuzzy, fragrant leaves and blooms
  • Mum’s are ideal for containers because of their shallow root systems
