In respect to this, is a mum the same as a chrysanthemum?
In addition to being a British English for“mom,” mum is the term commonly used forthe more than 30 species and numerous cultivars of the showyperennial flower called the chrysanthemum (Dendranthema xgrandiflorum, formerly called Chrysanthemummorifolium).
One may also ask, can you plant mums in October? Early season varieties can be expected to comeinto flower in early to mid-September, mid-season varieties frommiddle to late September, late season varieties from late Septemberto early October and season extenders from early tomid-October. Most mums are purchased in late Augustthrough September.
Correspondingly, what is the difference between hardy mums and garden mums?
There is a difference between garden and floristmums. Garden mums produce underground shoots andstolons that enable these mums to survive from year to year.Florist mums produce few or no stolons and are easily winterkilled. Both are photoperiodic, meaning they bloom in response toshort days and long nights.
What are florist mums?
Garden mums boast intense flower power andbold petal hues, including shades like russet, copper, gold, violetand orange. Garden mums—the reliably perennialmums—are hybrids of Korean chrysanthemums(Chrysanthemum indicum), which are usually hardy in Zones 4 to8.
