What are Belgian Chrysanthemums?

Greensboro, AL

Recently, Ive been reading about Belgian mums, and frankly, I had not heard of them before. I even ordered some Belgian mums.

Then decided to find out more about them.

Here is an article or two that explains what they are:

Gloria, I'm curious--did you receive the mums you ordered yet? What size pot do you get for your $1.40?

They were rooted liners in 5 in. pots. Im having trouble getting them going because of the heat here. Next year Ill order before the end of April.

Thanks! I will keep that in mind as well.

Gloria, where did you order your Belgian Mums from. I am just getting back into Mums after many years and want to grow different kinds. I have just potted 10 pots of Cascades today and will pot 3 more tomorrow. In the past I have had over a thousand blooms per plant. I will not get that many this year, late start. I will be posting pictures of how I grow them, just in case others would like too. Thanks.

Bluestone Perennials is also a good source for mums. Im not sure if they have the Belgians yet.

After making such a big deal about the Belgian mums, I have seen them now at Lowe's and Wal-Mart! $1.48 each LOL! am so sorry Gloria, I thought they were the up and coming thing, and not generally available.

They are the ones with the little teeny flowers, but there are a LOT of them.

Illoquin: I don't think they were available last year. Ill have to take a look. Now that I have some I definitely need more. Mine aren't doing much in this heat though.

gloria125, Have you set them in the ground, or keeping them protected?It is very hot to expose most anything.Mike

They tore up the Tuscaloosa Walmart also and took out the garden section. Put a lot of pillows in there instead.
