Chrysanthemum Progress in the Cut Flower Garden

Even though I’ve been gardening for several years, I’m still very new to growing Chrysanthemums. In this post, I’ll be talking about the florist mums that I’m growing for cut flowers. 

The main reason for this post is to serve as an update to the current status of blooms. Even though we’re well into the fall, the flowers are just barely starting to open. Whenever the frost comes, I make sure to cover them with agribon fabric – even though I’m not sure whether or not that’s actually necessary.

I think I’m most excited to see all of the different flowers which will be blooming in sprays. Since I planted several different varieties, I’m sure that there will be a very wide range of bright colors.

One of the more simple varieties that I planted is the Icy Isle chrysanthemum from King’s Mums. As you can see, they are a pure white single flower. Here in my garden, they’ve had a little bit of a beige tone. I can only imagine this is because we’ve had so much rain this fall.

Some of the larger varieties seem to be taking forever to start opening.

Have you ever grown mums for cut flowers before? I’d love to hear all about it in the comments below! Thanks so much for stopping by!
