|I bought 6 of these beauties and was told that they were perennials, but I cannot find out if they really are. Will these come back every year? The Home Depot code is BPEA0230. Thank you.

|Chrysanthemum ? morifolium are hardy garden mums. The tops of the plants will die down this winter and you can prune them off at ground level and place several inches of organic mulch over the crowns of the plants to help protect them from winter cold. Rake away the mulch next spring and you'll see new stems emerging from your chrysanthemums. They will grow during the spring and summer months and flower in late summer or early fall. Good luck with your mums!
