With so much going for them, mum’s the word this season.

Named for their long, spindly petals that resemble a spider’s legs, spider mums, also known as Fuji mums, are a fun variety of chrysanthemums that bring plenty of lacy elegance to every bouquet. With long, thin tubular petals, these stylish blooms give a fun pop of color and texture to any design. The purple spider mums in our Fall’s Brights Bouquet provide a great contrast to the smoother blooms and foliage for a fresh, exotic look.
Pompon mums are rounded varieties of chrysanthemums with short, soft petals that curve upward and inward, covering the disk and creating a globe-like appearance. Smaller versions of poms are called button poms and present a slightly flatter disk of color. Our Sunflower Fantasy design features excellent examples of small green button poms that add complementary pops of color throughout the design.
When you picture chrysanthemums, football mums, also called cremon mums, are probably what come to mind. With round, full blooms on a single stem, these fabulous mums come in an array of color. These bright fall blooms fill out floral designs beautifully. The orange football mums in our Autumn in Bloom Bouquet add intense texture that gives this display a luxurious flair.
Health Benefits of Chrysanthemums
Did you know that chrysanthemums are among the varieties of flowering plants that deliver health benefits? Along with being a beautiful addition to any home, the petals of these flowers can be steeped in boiling water to create an herbal tea that delivers relief from multiple symptoms. From anti-inflammatory properties to ingredients like calcium, magnesium, and iron, chrysanthemum tea can alleviate many cold-weather ailments like headaches, sore throats, skin conditions and even vertigo. Plus, NASA researchers have even discovered that chrysanthemums are natural air purifiers and reduce indoor air pollution. Mums are easy on your eyes and your health!
Celebrate fall with gorgeous blooms that keep you healthy. Send mums to someone special and let them enjoy the many benefits these amazing flowers have to offer.
