Chrysanthemum

Chrysanthemums are a must-have for the fall garden. No other fall flower delivers as much color for as long and as reliably as good ol' mums.

Mums liven up the fading fall garden with handsome flowers of nearly all shades and colors. Some varieties have daisy blooms; others may be rounded globes, flat, fringed, quill shape, or spoon shape. They work exceptionally well in container plantings and pots.

Plant It With
Sedum

'Autumn Joy' sedum pairs well with rounded mums in shades of bronze, lavender, pink, and red.

Aster

The daisylike blooms of asters peak at the same time as those of chrysanthemums. Because aster blooms are usually smaller than those of mums, they add a finer texture to the mix.

Miscanthus

Ornamental grasses come into their glory in autumn as mums display their beauty. Wispy miscanthus looks especially good with a bed of mums surrounding its base.
