Bloomin Tuesday – Mums

Chrysanthemum

This Chrysanthemum has been growing in my Grandmother’s flower bed for a few years now.  In my zone 7b area they are perennials.  I think this is considered a spoon type bloom.  The color seems to fade from yellow to cream to even a pale pink tone.  Sometimes it even looks a peachy tone in certain lighting.  This is the last new thing to bloom every fall in my garden.  To see more Bloomin’ Tuesday posts or to join in this week please visit our gracious host Jean at Ms Greenthumb.

  3. I love the spoon/quill shapes. There were several that I wanted to add this year and never got to it (Bluestone sells them in spring).

    Pretty colors you have!

    Me too Cameron, they are so much more interesting than the common pompoms. Well there is always next spring. Glad you stopped by today. Been missing you! 🙂
