Last weekend’s Mum Fest in Barberton was a smash hit especially with cool fall weather and sunny skies. The acceleration of the opening of chrysanthemum flowers is nothing short of amazing with the accompanying cool nights of below 55º F.

Cool nights and ample moisture are now ideal for planting all kinds of trees, shrubs and perennials as root growth will expand significantly until the ground temperature falls below 40º F. Conversely, as light levels and the day length decreases, top growth of these plants slows and eventually ceases and seems to contribute to the acceleration of the plant’s roots as long as the soil temperature is sufficient for growth. The advantage of fall planting is that before a hot, dry summer the result will be an explosion of healthy growth in spring due to the establishment of the plant from this fall planting.

  Why Igloo Mums?
Unlike other garden mums, these are hardy and will return year after year!  Their domed habit creates a mound of 2 feet tall by 2.5 feet wide.

Mass them in mixed borders with ornamental grasses, asters and stonecrops. In containers they look handsome when accessorized with a variety of gourds and small pumpkins.
