Colorful chrysanthemums

Zone: 3 to 9

Full Sun

Height: 2′ to 3′

Mums are the quintessential fall flowering plant so I thought I’d start my list with them.

They’re colorful and fairly easy to care for…just make sure they get enough water.

If you happen to live close to Costco, you can get a large pot of them for not very much money. They will definitely make a statement in  your fall landscape.

Last year, I even used them as part of my fall home tour. And I was lucky enough that they came back in the pots, so I won’t need to get new plants this fall.
