Southern Gardening: Mums offer plentiful fall decorating
Incorporating fall garden mums into your landscape is easy.
One of the most popular ways to display these beautiful plants is to simply place them in a big container on the front porch. The many warm colors available can fit into almost any home color scheme. The plants seem to have hundreds of flowers, so the impact is immediate.
Another option that many gardeners don’t consider is using fall mums as a bridge between summer and winter annual color. With most plants used for annual color, the summer color has already begun to decline before the winter annuals are ready to show off. Fall mums provide an easy and reliable display of color for that in-between period.
