Mum 'Stellar Purple' 4"

Chrysanthemum/Garden Mum

Stellar Purple: Heat and frost-tolerant, Stellar Purple Mums are perhaps the most popular purple mum. Although the blooms are a bit more short-lived than other varieties, flowers are a vibrant purple and often appear in stellar amounts.

The quintessential plant of autumn. Known for their show-stopping 1 – 3 foot mounds of endless flowers, mums come in a multitude of colors including yellow, red, white, orange, and purple. Best planted in full sun locations with organically rich, well-draining soils, mums are certain to brighten up any autumn landscape or container planting. 

Frequent fertilizing and deadheading encourages re-blooming. Make sure to keep plants well watered throughout the growing season to avoid dieback. Plant out of high-traffic or windy areas to avoid snapping or damage of branches.
