The November birth flower is the Chrysanthemum, also known as the Mum, and is said to bring laughter and love into the home. Chrysanthemums come in several varieties, including Spider Mums, Football Mums, and Cremons, and they are great to use as focal or filler flowers. We have recently added to our selection of Mums and now carry an assortment of beautiful Fall colors as well as an assortment of striking, electric colored tinted Mums. Let’s take a look at some of the different varieties…
Fall Colors: Beautiful Fall colors only available through Nov.!
Dahlia Style: Similar to the Dahlia Flower, but much more hearty. Fluffy, full and luscious!
Football Mums: The Football Mum is the largest of the Mum family, with each stem holding a single head of long petals and no center button.
Spider Mums: The Spider Mum is a unique flower within the Mum family. Each stem has a single head with long, tubular outer petals, resembling an exploding firework or a spider!
Daisy Style: Similar to Daisies, with a defined yellow center, but much larger!
Tinted Mums: Intravenously tinted, using a white flower as the base, to get striking colors!
And those are just some of the dozens we have available! To see our full selection, check out our Mums and Spider Mums category!
To care for your Mums follow these care instruction:
- Open your box of flowers and inspect.
- Ensure that your flower buckets are clean and disinfected.
- Fill the buckets with at least 4 inches of fresh, cool water. If you have flower food, follow the instructions on the packet to prepare your water.
- Remove flowers from box by cutting any straps.
- Remove any packaging material, including plastic sleeve and/or newspaper. Flowers may come with a netting around the blooms. Leave this netting on until you are ready to use and arrange your flowers.
- Cut stems diagonally under running water with sharp scissors to desired length. Remove any greenery that would fall below the water line, as this can cause bacteria.
- Immediately after cutting, place the stems in the prepared buckets.
- Allow flowers at least 4 hours to hydrate well. Flowers may take up to 12 hours to properly hydrate.
- Keep flowers away from direct sunlight, drafts or excessive heat.
- Change water every 24 hours to keep flowers fresh. Assure that your flowers have sufficient water. The flowers will drink an exceptionally large amount of water upon arrival.
Enjoy your Flowers! 🙂
