I found these starter mums at my local Walmart, $1 a plant. Chrysanthemums usually do well for me. Most varieties are perennials, whether the labels says so or not so don’t be so quick to rip them out at the end of the season. The foliage dies back in winter and they come back in the spring.
My front yard needed a little color. At $1 dollar a plant, I figured I’d get an entire flat! (10 plants.) They look nice. They’re small, but hopefully, they’ll fill out next year.
