The Mum plant is an herbaceous perennial. The name ‘Mum’ is the shortened version of Chrysanthemum. Mums are thought to have originated in China. From the basic yellow colors of mums, plant breeders and gardeners have produced mums with an array of colors and flower shapes. Mums come in the colors of white, yellow, gold, bronze, red, burgundy, pink, lavender; and purple. Nature Hills markets mums that are basically called hardy mums. Hardy mums produces flowers after five to seven weeks of short days and thus they are often called fall mums.

Plant mums in full sun and in well drained soil. Do not over crowd the mum as they require good air circulation to reduce the chance of disease. Every three years the mum should be divided to rejuvenate them. Mums will benefit by being located on the south side of the house or shrub line for protection against the wind. Mulching the mum plant for the winter is also recommended.
