Make Way for Mums

 

Fall’s mums are here to stay, and given how pretty they are, you’ll never want them to leave. It’s that time of year to give your front steps and entryway a refresh, re-potting plants, setting out pumpkins and switching out your summer wreath for something a little more seasonal. We have to do all we can here in the subtropics to make Fall feel like Fall, but the season’s beloved flowering plant goes a long way to helping us achieve that spirit. At Port Charlotte Florist, we’re happy to help match you up with a mum.

The classic look of mums is deep green stems sprouting seemingly hundreds of chipper yellow buds. But mums come in all colors, and thankfully many of those fall within the season’s palette. Frost-proof and built to withstand shorter days (and cooler ones, if we had them), mums can be tended to through the Fall or planted straight into your garden bed or another container. Our Potted Mum Plant can go either way. Deliver it in a basket to a loved one, bring one home for yourself, or remove the mum from its charming basket and mix it in with other seasonal blooms.

If you’re in the market for a mum gift, our Fall Blooming Garden Basket is right up your alley. The mums here are complemented by a variety of other plants and flowers, so there’s something to please any recipient. It also comes ready to be displayed at the doorway or introduced into a home’s existing Fall decor, or to make an impact on a lanai table that may be lacking in that seasonal spirit. Fall’s mums are blooming at Port Charlotte Florist, so come in and say hello.
