As with other discount- priced mixed collections from Michigan Bulb, these football mums were clearly a carefully selected set. Six different classic colors, no duplicates, and every plant healthy and vigorous. A wonderful collection.

Bring back that hometown feeling with our Football Mum Mix! These chrysanthemums are easy to grow, last a long time in gardens or vases, and when pinned to your jacket, have been said to bring good luck to your home team. When planting these Football Mums - also known by its botanical name Chrysanthemum x Morifolium - pick a spot with full sunlight to partial shade. The mums should be planted in well-drained soil as overly wet soil can be damaging. This Chrysanthemum can grow 18 to 24 inches in height will spread 18 to 24 inches. With a moderate growth rate, your Football Mums can be expected to bloom from late summer to frost, accompanied by deeply lobed leaves. The flowers are globular and can be 6" or more,and arrive in eye-catching shades of yellow, gold, bronze, red, pink, or purple. Pinching back growth until mid-July can help your Football Mum reach a bushy status and disbudding all but terminal buds creates the largest blooms. With these heavy petal flowers, you'll be bringing in the fall season with wonderful and bright colors.
