Creekside Nursery has 12 varieties of Chrysanthemums, also known as Mums, which are all currently green and starting to crack color. This sun loving plant needs regular watering. Garden Mums are most commonly grown in containers, but they can grow in a wide range of soils. The flower heads can vary, but most have a similar appearance to a pompom or a daisy. Pair Mums with Sedums, Asters, or Miscanthus.
