It seems my Mums have taken so long to pop this year. The good news is the flower buds are plentiful and are now starting to open. The color purple is so strong and a great variation from earlier blooms in the garden.
What is so enjoyable for me about my mums is that they are all an extension of the original mother plant that I made cuttings from. It is one of those wonders of nature how you can reproduce more plants by simply using the powers of Mother Nature at your finger tips.
