Sixty Seconds with Judi

If I were to close my eyes and think of fall, the first thing that would come to mind would be color. The trees with their brilliant reds, yellows and oranges would paint the backdrop. The beautiful blue skies would be filled with geese falling in formation while squawking loudly to each other.   The air would be crisp with distant smells of apples and cinnamon. Children would be playing in leaf piles, dressed in sweatshirts and jeans. And gardens would be overflowing with Chrysanthemums in every color!

Chrysanthemums, a hardy perennial, are the quintessential autumn flower. Their prolific decorative blooms are known to last long into the season; most surviving a light frost. They come in an expansive array of colors from the many golden tones to the deepest reds and purples and pretty much anything in-between. Commonly known as mums (a much friendlier spelling), Chrysanthemums can create color and warmth to a fading garden or a blank doorstep. When added to a hay-bale with pumpkins, you magically create the most perfect autumn scene.

Chrysanthemums are easy to plant and require little care. You can plop them in a planter, plant them directly into the garden or be creative and plant them into a hay-bale.  Come visit us at the Garden Center where you will find a massive variety of brilliant Chrysanthemums to add some color to your world.
