Mums are a low maintenance and easy to grow plant for fall. They are loaded with flowers and come in a wide selection of colors, flower types and bloom times. Lucas Greenhouses grows a full range of mums starting with very early varieties and finishing with late season extenders to keep you in color all fall. Fancy Ursula Orange is an Orange Decorative that flowers early in the season. Babette's rich yellow flowers are long lasting and its plant habit is uniform.

Mums grow best in full sun location. Mature plants should be planted far enough apart so the foliage does not touch. Plant at same soil level as original container and water in thoroughly. If planted in fall no fertilizer is needed until spring. Diseases are best prevented by mums being planted in well drained soil with proper spacing to allow for airflow. It is also important not to water late in the day so the foliage is dry come nightfall. Wait until spring to cut back dead stalks. To encourage branching and development of compact bushy plants, it is important to pinch back your garden mums in the spring as soon as the new growth is 4-6 inches tall. You can pinch about ½ of the new growth at the top of each and every shoot. Repeat this procedure throughout the summer whenever new shoots are 3-5 inches long. You can stop pinching around early to mid July.
