Product Description

When you think of fall flowers to plant, many people think of garden mums or their longer name Chrysanthemums! Fall mum plants are a classic perennial to have in the ground or in containers that bring fall colors and joy to all who see them.

With two vibrant colors to choose from, these yellow or red Chrysanthemum flowers are a dime a dozen. Choose the multi-color pack if you would like one of each color. The pot size is 12 inches in diameter and 10 inches tall making it a jumbo sized mum.

With clusters of chrysanthemum flower buds that burst open from early fall to early winter and dark green foliage that lasts all year long, the Chrysanthemum x morifolium flowers are always a hit during the fall season!

Our fall mum flowers are the perfect addition to any fall garden space – including planted in containers on your porch, mass planted in flower garden beds, or lining walkways to add a pop of color! They also make great cut flowers for vases.

Planting Chrysanthemums & Chrysanthemum Care

If you are planting mums in fall, they like an area with lots of bright full sun but they can tolerate partial shade as well. Hardy mums can also be planted in early spring with plenty of time to establish strong root systems before the cold winter.

Repotting the mum plants as soon as you get it will ensure they keep growing healthy through the fall and winter growing seasons. Gently break apart the root ball to give the root systems the best chance at growing.

Mums like the heat which means they need a lot of water! Keep the potting soil consistently moist and make sure it is well draining soil. When repotting, give them a good dose of water until it runs through the bottom of the nursery pot. After that, water every other day during the bloom time.

These fall landscaping flowers are sometimes planted as annuals but can be kept as a perennial plant with proper care. Most garden mum plants are perennials through USDA plant hardiness zones 5-9. To prepare mums for winter, add a thick layer of 3 inches of mulch surrounding the root zone. Wait to prune old stems until spring.

Deadhead often as the blooms fade for long lasting blooms that keep for weeks on end. You can divide mums in the spring as the plants grow and after they outgrow their current planting spot.

These Chrysanthemum plants will get up to 2-4 feet tall and 1-3 feet wide at maturity.

Shipping Info

Once your Hardy Fall Mum Plants Variety Pack order is placed, we will ship your plant(s) within seven business days year round unless during the checkout process you request otherwise in the space provided to do so.

Perfect Plants’ shipping specialists carefully package your plants using a proven packaging method that ensures your plants arrive healthy, colorfully alive and ready to flourish. We’ve coined the term ‘upside down box test’ and we do just that; we carefully package so that regardless of the direction your box is handled, it will not harm your precious plant that’s inside.

No shipping process is without a problem from time to time. On rare occasions some plants may experience some of the following during their transit: drooping, minor leaf-loss and/or minimal yellowing/discoloration, minor limb damage, etc. These instances are quite rare, but can happen when shipping plants in boxes.

Plants normally recover within a few weeks after planting. If a damaged box has injured your plant on the inside, please notify us within 5 days of receiving you package(s) by emailing us a photograph of the damage.

We always do our very best to ensure that your plants are packed and shipped in the safest, gentlest and most effective way possible.

Will my plants and trees look like the photographs?

Absolutely! Unlike other online nurseries, our photos are of actual plants and trees we’ve grown here, on our family operated nursery.

our story Lloyd nurseryGrowing our own plants and trees helps to ensure we ship you the best quality plants that are free of pests and diseases.

Your plants and trees may however not ship with flowers on them, like the photographs. This all depends on the time of year you buy your plant or tree. Crape Myrtle trees, for example, only bloom during the summer months, so if you purchase one during the spring or fall, they would ship without flowers. Once planted, your plants will grow and thrive giving you flowers for many years to come!

Pot Sizes

Pot sizes (commonly referred to in gallons) are shipped in the same size nursery trade pots which may vary in actual volume. Some plants may have been at the approximate pot size listed, but require excess dirt to be removed so that you will not be paying any additional shipping costs. This doesn’t happen very often though.

Shipping Fees

Care

Choose a planting location that offers adequate sunlight and shade in a low traffic area. Allow proper clearance for the mature growth size. Well-drained soil is ideal. Water regularly for the first planted year to ensure adequate water is available for establishing a strong root system. Prune as necessary to remove any damaged or dead foliage and to promote a well-balanced structure.

Planting Instructions:

Dig a hole approximately twice as wide as your new plant’s root ball and deep enough so that the top of the root ball is equal with the ground level.

Loosen the root ball using a small garden spade or by hand. Breaking smaller outer roots can encourage growth into the new soil, but take care to not damage large primary roots.

Place the plant in the hole and ensure that it is situated evenly upright.  Use the excavated soil to fill in around the root ball, using your foot to pack it in firmly. Thoroughly soak with a hose as you fill in the dirt. Take great care to not leave any gaps or air spaces around the root ball as this could kill the plant.

A 2-4 inch layer of mulch is strongly recommended to help retain moisture and discourage weed growth. Apply mulch over the entire planting area but keep away from the stems or trunk by a few inches. Ensure that the plant and surrounding soil is completely soaked with water.

To ensure the proper nutrients are available for the life of your plant our proprietary Perfect Plants Special Blend Soil and a once yearly application of Nutricote Total 360 Fertilizer are great considerations for your new plants!
