Back in the early days of our garden, we bought a few small garden mums for the new side garden. Years later, those plants (and their many divisions) have grown into monstrous mounds, two foot tall by four foot wide, engulfing anything we are foolish enough to plant close to them in spring, when they don't yet hint at their late-season girth. But we wouldn't be without them - their form adds structure to the garden, which they really brighten up over a long season of bloom - from late summer well into fall.

Your flowers and your garden are just very very beautiful.How about posting a picture of the full garden,since I can't come and see it. How much time on an average do you spend in the summers in your garden?|
|Bre||Aug 06, 2010||Are mums able to be divided? If so, how do I do that, we have some that are beautiful, but overtaking our small garden. Thank you|
Yes, mums can be divided easily - just cut clumps apart using a spade or shovel and replant the pieces. I wouldn't do it in the middle of summer though, if I had any choice in the matter.
