I planted them in 2007 and they didn’t come back in 2008. But, they are back with a vengeance this year. They got GINORMOUS.
It’s looking a little crazy in our side yard. I planted the bulbs and they are going like crazy, too. I’m not winning any gardening awards because everything is really squishing each other. But, I really love seeing the mums anyhow.
There are two of the yellow-white mums. And, then two of these reddish-mums that haven’t bloomed yet. (Those are calla lilies next to them. Cannot wait to see those bloom.)
Here’s the side yard right after mulching it in early 2008.
I like the colors, but I will definitely be re-evaluating next year. I’ll be planting the red flowers (bulbs) and the callas (bulbs) elsewhere and the corn will disappear. I’m also going to break up the irises and possibly move a few other things.
You live and learn, I guess.
How are your flowers doing?
