I was amazed how large these got in the first year. The variety of flower colors is very nice.

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.
