Garden Mum ‘Autumn Sunset’
- Late Season Nectar Source,
- Unique Flower Shape
(Garden Mum) Wow and unique are just two words that describe Chrysanthemum Autumn Sunset™! This beautiful bicolor mum looks like a multitude of mini sunflowers when in bloom. The center of the flowers have shades of orange and yellow and is complimented by a ring of red-orange petals. Autumn Sunset™ will add a burst of color to your fall window boxes and containers and will bring back life to your fading landscapes. It will also provide a late-season source of nectar for butterflies, so be sure to add some of these fall-blooming gems to your landscape. Garden mums prefer full sun, but will tolerate light shade, especially in hotter climates. They also need adequate amounts of water, so be sure to keep them moist. They will thrive with a weekly application of a water soluble fertilizer when in bloom. Although garden mums can be grown as a perennial depending on the hardiness zone they are located in, they do tend to perform as annuals in northern areas of the country.
