Answer: I like plants grouped into odd numbers (3,5,7,etc.) They have more of an impact in the garden than a lone plant. However, mums can grow into attractive bushy plants, 15 inches tall and wide, so take that into consideration when you plant yours in the garden. Hardy mums are just that. They will bloom even past the first few frosts of the season before the tops of the plants die down. When this happens, cut away the old stems and foliage. Next spring, new shoots will emerge from the roots. They are long-lived perennials. Enjoy your new plants!
