Perennial Mums . . .
These are a staff favorite!
See Wilma's article below...perennial mums are late bloomers that add big flower power to the fall garden. They spread nicely, are loved by pollinators, and make a fantastic cut flower too! Choose from Ryan's Pink, Magenta, and Single Apricot.
|Take care of these garden tips now so you can relax when frost is imminent.|
- Move houseplants indoors now.
- Harvest sweet potatoes before frost. Click here for additional info on harvesting and curing sweet potatoes.
- Harvest pumpkins and winter squash before a hard frost.
- Dig up any tender bulbs - like dahlias, caladiums, tuberoses, and gladiolas - and store for winter.
- Your hummingbird feeders (if kept fresh) can stay out a little longer to accommodate late migrants.
- Cooler temperatures, not just frost, cause basil to turn black. Harvest now by hanging basil to dry or making it into pesto for the freezer.
- Remember that leaves are a valuable resource - for composting and as shelter for pollinators. Mulching mowers can chop up fallen leaves to fertilize your lawn and improve soil. Utilize your leaves - don't toss them.
|FROM WILMA: |
No plants are more associated with autumn than chrysanthemums - a.k.a. mums. From the first potted florist mums of early fall to late-season perennial mums, they are the star of the autumn garden. There are over 40 species of mums with all colors except blue and true red. Their flowers are also diverse with daisy, button, pompon, spidery, and other forms. Large “football” mums are popular in some parts of the country as a corsage flower and other decorations at homecoming games.
Chrysanthemums were first cultivated in Asia as early as the 15th Century B.C. Images of mums were depicted on early paintings, jewelry, clothing, pottery, carvings, etc. Around the 8th Century A.D. they appeared as the official seal of the Japanese Emperor and the country has a National Chrysanthemum Day called Festival of Happiness.
Perennial mums are my favorites, and they are a joy to see in the landscape now. Pollinators are enjoying them, too. Yesterday I watched several bees as well as Monarch and Swallowtail butterflies on mums at the Garden Center. Check out our crop of mums as well as other season-extending perennials!
The 16-petal chrysanthemum, the Japanese Emperor's coat of arms, is utilized in many places on Nijo Castle near Kyoto, Japan.
