I am tardy to the picture party started by stormyla. Oh well. About more than half of the mums bloomed in October but, with the all the rains that we had in Sept/October, there are a few stragglers who are only nnnooowww starting to bloom. Enjoy.

Luis_pr, those are beauties for certain! Is there a cultivar name for each one? I am particularly taken by the last one you posted, wow!

Probably but it is difficult to know now, Joseph. I planted them about four years ago when I thought nothing of keeping the plant labels. They may be a form of spider mums or spoon mums.

Thanks, Luis. I bet I could picture ID the last one if I surfed King's Mums and similar online nursery web pages.

Luis, Those are both very beautiful. I tried one similar to your red, but it turned out not to be hardy here. So many of the daisy types and the spidery ones are for warmer climates only.
