Hi y'all!!! I just bought these today but all they said was 'Fall Mum'. Any ideas on which one they are?

Wow, that is a gorgeous mum! I sure hope someone will be able to identify that beauty for you! There are so many crosses and cultivars of Chrysanthemums that I wouldn't have a clue.

Well, I've been looking around a lot and still can't find which one it could be. Confused So I've decided to take some cuttings and root them just in case it doesn't make it through the winter. Does anyone have any advice on the best way to do this? I've never tried to root mums before Confused

Stephanie: I'm not familiar with rooting cuttings of Chrysanthemums but I found this information when googling:

http://www.gardeninginfozone.com/propagating-chrysanthemums-...

and upon further googling I found this one, Chrysanthemum 'Sun City' (Synonym Dendranthema) that resembles your plant. This isn't in English but the plant sure resembles yours:

Hurray! I tip my hat to you. Thank you Lin!!! That's it!!!

The website is in Polish so I am able to translate it (google) Smiling I have a friend who is Polish as well, although she is in Barcelona at the moment.

Thank you for the tips link on cuttings too. I'm definitely going to give it a try.
