Mother Nature leads us to believe fall’s cool down won’t support the lush and colorful blooms which fill your borders and beds of the summer months, but that’s only partly true. The hardy chrysanthemum is considered a colorful harbinger of autumn. Depending on your zone, you may have to plant “mums” in the spring in order to guarantee a fall bloom. Mulch this perennial and you’ll keep your mums from succumbing to harder frosts of late fall.
