Now is the time of year when beautiful mums appear at Trees Today Nursery, grocery stores, and home stores. These are called “fall” or annual mums. Their colors are an assortment of reds, oranges, bronzes, yellows, whites, and many more. They look beautiful sitting in pots on front porches or placed in gardens. However, they generally do not survive being replanted in the garden in Zone 4 (our area of Wisconsin and Minnesota). If they do survive a winter, chances are they will not survive the following winter. If you succeed in overwintering a fall mum in your garden, to get a bushy blooming mum in fall you need to start pinching it back in July or chances are it will become stringy and lanky.
Garden mums are the perennial mums hardy to Zone 3. At Trees Today we carry Mammoth Mums that were bred at the University of Minnesota for endurance and cold. Once planted in your garden they may grow to 3-3 1/2 feet wide by 3-4 feet tall. Their colors are limited, but their abundant blooms are very showy and last for weeks. Also, these mammoth mums do not need any pinching.
Look at these beauties! Is there something missing from your landscape? Are you struggling to find a plant small enough to round out your garden borders? The perfect plant does exist, it’s a dianthus! Petite in size these plants give off enormous amounts of color. Typically found in hues of white, red, pink, and purple.
Check out these dainty beauties while supplies last!
Our famous mums have arrived. We have over 400 hundred mums in red, orange, white, yellow and various shades of these colors. It may be time to replace some of those tired annuals with colorful fall garden mums and enjoy them as we head into Fall.
Finally we have the Berry Poppins winterberry for sale at our nursery. We have tried for several years to get this shrub but it was never available so we are pretty thrilled that we now have it in stock. If you like winterberries, or a shrub with red berries in winter, this might just be the one for you! It has a height and spread of 3-4′ and you can use Jim Dandy (the male) as the pollinator. Read more about it by clicking on the following link.
This is a very showy, compact perennial that blooms in April, May and June. It has stiff, grass-like leaves and stunning pink flowers. This perennial does not like good soil, preferring instead infertile, dry soil and full sun. Works great in rock gardens. The Armeria grows 6-12 inches tall and wide. When the flowers are done blooming, they dry on the plant rather then rot. A very slow spreader and is salt tolerant. Zones 3-8.
An exciting reblooming, gorgeous “red” clematis. These dark red flowers are 5″ across and bloom from June to September. The vine grows about 5′ high and will grow in full sun to part shade. It would look great in a large planter by your entryway. Since it blooms from both the leaf axils and stems, there are flowers from the ground up. This is a Zone 4 clematis. We also have other beautiful clematis’. So stop in when they arrive to get your selection early before they are gone.
