Did you know mums have 3 seasons?
There’s an early, mid- and late season for mums.
We’re rolling into mid-season. Beautiful tight buds are coloring up & will give you a show for the next month.
Mischlers has two series for mid-season for you now:
- Conaco features warm fall colors: gold, orange and yellow
- Amiko has four colors: white, violet, yellow, & Amiko bronze.
A late-season mum series is Staviski, coming into color in October. They are white, pink, yellow & red.
Tip: Tight on space? Think vertical and pick up a hanging mum.
Want spring color? Plant bulbs now
Bulbs have arrived! If you want colorful flowers in spring, you have to plant the bulbs in autumn.
- Deer resistant: If you have a problem with deer, choose daffodils, alliums, muscari & fritillaria
- Tulips: To enjoy tulips all spring, plant different varieties that bloom at different times.
- Crocus: For a flower that blooms early in spring, choose crocus. It peeks out from under the snow!
Succulents: easy & beautiful
Succulents are easy to care for– they thrive on neglect! Overwatering even one time can rot the roots and kill the plant, but they can bounce back from drying out. If your container has good drainage and you don’t water too much, your succulent will be happy.
Most require full sun (especially in winter) but some, like varieties of jade and aloe, can handle indirect light.
Some succulents grow slowly, which makes them perfect for windowsills or desks. Others grow quickly and make good statement plants.
There are all sorts of leaf shapes available, including rosettes, spikes, tubes and soft scalloped edges.
There are so many succulents to choose from. Here are highlights of just a few varieties:
- Echeveria: These popular rose-shaped plants tend to stay compact. They need full sun.
- Kalanchoe: These fast-growing succulents are enjoyed most for their foliage, but do have interesting blooms.
- Haworthia: Many of these have translucent windows on leaf ends. They prefer indirect light and are slow-growing.
- Senecio: This genus includes the popular ‘String of Pearls’, but also includes upright shrub-type plants.
- Aloe: This genus includes the “burn plant” Aloe vera, but also many lovely decorative varieties.
