Mums - More Great Combinations.

Chartreuse Creeping Jenny,
bold textured Ornamental Kale
and lavender Chrysanthemum.

Mums are an expected fall show.
Try some of these unexpected combinations to
take your display from ordinary to exceptional.

Orange mums paired with
purple petunias that are still going strong
are bold and beautiful.
 Lavender (Lavandula  angustifolia) and
Columbine (Aguilegia foliage)
hide leggy stems and set off bright mums.

Subtle Bluebeard (Caryopteris) flowers 
beautifully set off
orange mums.

Mums are an exclamation point of color to
Fountain Grass (Pennisetum alopecuroides) and
Burgundy Wedding Train Coleus.

Japanese Forest Grass (Hakonechloa macra)
is another stunning grass to pair Chrysanthemums.
For more Chrysanthemum combos, see Mums - Stunning Combinations
Enjoy the fall weather and
keep a lookout for
new and interesting ways to
highlight your Chrysanthemums.
Happy Gardening!

Wow! I like these combinations! Honestly, I am not a fan of orange,yellow, and brown. But you showed some great ways to mix them with other colors. Thank you!!!

Thanks for stopping by! I love the summer flower colors, but when cool fall weather comes, it's somehow fitting that flower colors do some adjusting as well.

Love your mums. Their exhibition is held in autumn here in our zone 10b. Yours are looking as good as they can be.

I love mums - they're so bright and cheery just as everything else is beginning to wind down. But they look best in combination with other plants - and your combos are terrific.
