Fall mums are one of the most symbolic flowers of the fall. Whether it be planters, garden beds, or the front porch they can add an awesome pop of colour to any area! They typically start to open their blooms around the middle of September and last into October. The blooms last longer when they are kept cool so if you bring them indoors for colour try to keep them in a cooler location with good light. When watering try to avoid getting water on the flowers as this will also help them last longer. They can tolerate the cold however they are an annual in our area and it is best to cover them with something or bring them inside during the evenings if it is going to drop below 0°C. Fall mums will not survive the winter if left outside.
