FALL (LATE AUGUST TO OCTOBER)
Time to add some great fall colors to your garden now! Whether its filling in some empty space with perennials or choosing from an assortment of colors and sizes, from either garden or perennial mums. Also available would be Pansies or Violas, Asters, flowering Kale, or a limited selection of cornstalks and straw bales.
Garden vs. Perennial Mums
When describing the difference between garden and perennial mums, think first of the appearance. Garden mums are the variety that are more domed in shape with either the button or small daisy flowers while perennial mums have larger, more double blooms. Michigan winters can be tough and not all mums will withstand them- garden mums won't necessarily survive our winters while perennial mum are hardier.
