I’ve attempted to grow chrysanthemums for the last few growing seasons. It always seemed like I was doing something wrong. This year, I really wanted to focus on growing a really unique collection of florist mums. Among the first varieties of chrysanthemums to start blooming were the Kelvin Tattoo chrysanthemum.
Kelvin Tattoo mums are definitely not the type of flower that I would usually be drawn towards. Since I knew that these plants wouldn’t start blooming until late October and November, it seemed appropriate to focus on a lot of gold and orange tones. Kelvin Tattoo certainly did not disappoint! As you can see the small sprays are a very vibrant orange-yellow color with a very appealing darker center.
From one single plant, I was rewarded with several lovely stems to use for cut flowers. The vase life of Kelvin Tattoo is incredible, too. I can’t wait to grow this variety of chrysanthemum again in the future. Have you ever grow florist mums before? I’d love to hear all about your experiences in the comments below. Thank you so much for stopping by! 🙂
