One of the greatest things about Mum flower arrangements is their longevity: Mum baskets & potted plants are the gifts that keep on giving! This is one case where the scientific plant name has become a commonly used name by florists and botanists. Other common names for Chrysanthemums are based on the shortened version ("mums") of the genus name. Thus one will hear "hardy Mums" ("garden Mums"), the focus of this article, versus the less hardy "florist Mums." Chrysanthemum is from the Greek, chrysos (gold) and anthos (flower).
Send Chrysanthemum flower arrangements and no matter what, they’re surefire "forget me nots!" Chrysanthemums are usually considered perennials. However, if you wish to grow Chrysanthemum plants in your area as perennials, select an appropriate cultivar. Your local county extension can offer advice in this matter. A spring planting is best, as it gives the Chrysanthemum flowers time to become established before winter.

In landscaping, Chrysanthemums are valued for the fact that they bloom in fall, hence, helping you to achieve four-season interest in your yard. They look best planted in a mass and surrounded by other similar colors (but for health, don't overcrowd). Chrysanthemum flowers are also a favorite of florists for “Anytime” and fall holiday arrangements, due to, again, the longevity of the beauty’s blooms.
