Mums are bursting into bloom in my front yard! I am so excited that they even survived the weeks of horrendous drought this summer! We are talking lying on the ground wilted in some cases. I can't believe how many buds they still have after that.
There is a Ryan's yellow in my collage and a Niche's October Glow, but most of them are Lowe's cheapos, C. morifolium. They appear to have crossed with each other in some cases. I have little plants all over the place that I did not sow and they are colors I have not seen in my garden before. It's so much fun to see a new one open every day or two!
Are you growing mums? Have you noticed that deer avoid them? I even have a daylily they didn't find because it's surrounded by mums. So, yay!
Here's another Chrysanthemum I love. Maybe you know this one but if you don't, get it and read it to your favorite child/ren. It's adorable!
