Mums are a great addition to your garden for fall. They provide colour from late August to October, making the perfect festive flower for Thanksgiving. Mums are also a great combination plant with Pansies, Ornamental Kale, or other fall plants. Click here to learn more about annuals that do well in the Fall.

Plant mums in the garden bed to add shades of yellow, red, orange, pink, purple and even white. You can even make a stunning display by planting Mums in a pot or container garden.
Mums are sold as annuals but in our coastal climate, they can be left in the garden to flower again next year. Simply cut them back in the winter and they come up again next summer.
