Do your mums cross and self-sew? Here's a few favorites off-springs from mums I've had in my yard forever that have popped up from crossing and self-sewing.


Not sure what color you'd call this one. Mauve...dusty rose?

all are from cascade type as seen on King's Mum link

http://www.kingsmums.com/

I'm going to propagate some next fall and train them to cascade in hanging baskets and window boxes.

I just love the colors...especially the last one

Most of the people who grow the cascades, take thew cuttings in Jan. and pore the nitrogen to them all year. I have a good number of these but lost most of the ones from growers that started growing seedlings for shows. Kings has like seven different cascades but if you find a Mum org. in a big city, lots of growers have lots of different ones that you can't find from the growers.
