Chrysanthemum Uses

The most common use of garden mums is for fall color. These beautiful plants provide several flower colors right when other plants typically begin to fade. The flowers also provide a late-season source of nectar for hummingbirds and butterflies. These are commonly grown in garden borders, combination planters, hanging baskets and mass plantings. Mums are also great for cut flowers. The flowers can survive for up to 2 weeks in a vase, however the leaves don't last as long. So most people cut the leaves off ahead of time. Chrysanthemums are available in several shapes, sizes and flower colors. Stems can reach 2-6 inches in height. Flowers can be .5 to 10 inches in diameter.

Chrysanthemum Plant Care

These plants require at least 5 hours of direct sunlight per day. Be sure to plant these in the ground where it has well drained soil, or in containers that have drainage holes. We recommend watering once per week with a good long soak. An inch of water per week should be enough in most situations, unless its particularly hot outside. You can also apply a liquid fertilizer weekly, but it isn't required. Plant these 2 feet apart, center on center to give the plants enough room to grow. There are 13 different varieties of flowers of European mums, which is what is most commonly found and what we offer. Some of the best known flower types are daisy, spider, cushion and button. The blooms are also known as pompons or buttons sometimes. For more in-depth information, you can visit the National Chrysanthemum Society. Growing indoors or outdoors, we recommend deadheading the plants. This is done by cutting off the dead or sick looking flowers. This helps the plant give energy to the newer and fresher looking flowers and improves the overall appearance of the plant.

Caring for Chrysanthemum Indoors

If the plants are rootbound when you receive them, be sure to find a new pot that is larger to give the roots more room. The plants will need a sunny window, typically south facing. It will need at least 5 hours of direct sunlight each day. Be sure to keep the plant moist at all times, and not allow it to get too dry. If the plant does get too dry, you can give it a long soak to help it recover.
