As the temperature begins to drop and the night get longer, the colors of fall begin to appear. Chrysanthemums add fall color to your home whether indoors or outdoors. This hardy flower stands up the lower temperatures and shorter days while still enhancing your home with the rich autumn hues of bronze, orange, gold and yellow. With so many color, textures and sizes to choose from, mums can be a great way to showcase fall in your home. The experts at Walter Knoll Florist can help choose arrangements and plants that will meet all your fall decorating needs.

From the tiny button mum, with round heads in shades of yellow to the broad, white moonbeam blooms, chrysanthemums varieties offer something for everyone. The quilled bloom mum has long, slender petals that come many of the traditional fall colors. The single bloom mum has short, close petals that give the flower a bushy look. Perfect for planters, this mum would make a great addition to your outdoor decorations. Spider bloom mums have tubular petals that are found in many colors and can give a lacy, elegant look to a tabletop display.
Bowl of Mums
Although Chrysanthemums are often sold as perennial plants, there are many varieties of mums that do grow well in the St. Louis area. Potted mums can be transplanted to gardens or hanging baskets. Planting in garden soil with other flowers or even vegetables will work for growing mums. Beginning in the spring, mums should be planted in your garden to give them ample time to grow and mature over the summer. You will be rewarded with hardy flowers that should bloom through the fall season.
