The Q&A Archives: Festive Spray Mums

Question: Hi!

I saw some bright gorgeous flowers at the florist called Festive Spray mums. They are in the brightest shades of blue and fuschia. I bought some home and inspected the leaves and found even they have some coloring on them. These colors look too good to be true! Can I get mum plants in these bright colors, or are the flowers I bought just dyed those colors? I suspect this because the leaves have tinges of color almost as if someone snipped the stems and put white flowered stalks in colored solution!

Answer: Although there are some bright purply pink mums available for gardens, they are not "that" bright. You will often find that florists' flowers have been "color enhanced".
