These mums bloomed early this year.
Even though I pinched them back in July,
they started blooming at the end of August!
and told folks not to throw away their mums because they will come back.
All of my gold mums are still surviving as you see above.
Below is the only burgundy mum still living.
Maybe they don't like a lot of shade which they now have,
nor sharing with the ornamental grass?
