Falling for Garden Mums

With the arrival September, I had been looking to add a splash of Fall Color to my Mailbox Butterfly Garden, and so I swapped out the Salvia 'May Night' for a trio of hardy Chrysanthemums. I never much appreciated Mums before, but after discovering that they actually do over-winter quite well and are not mere disposables, I have a new found respect for hardworking Hardy Mums. They light up a garden and contribute flower power just when it's needed most, and so I will always make a place in my garden for this great Autumn wonder.
