I bought some hardy mums last fall and kept them in containers until now. They are now planted in a flower bed. They look bushy but already have flowers about to bloom. I thought mums were fall plants. So before I cut the flowers off, I want to know if mums just bloom once or could these be ones that like to bloom in spring and then again in fall? There are two different varieties, but both are doing this. Neither had very detailed stakes with them so I am not at all sure of varieties. I just know that one had massive amount of blooms all around and the other type has longer stems and less flowers but more showy.

I can't give you any advice since I live in Zone 5b. I did visit my relatives last week in N.C. and was surprised to see that the mums were in bloom or had large buds on them. Good Luck!
