  • Beautiful late season color
  • Great mounding habit
'Lava Red' has a nice sphere shape and rich red flowers that cover the plant. The strong stems do not have the brittleness that is found in many other garden mums. Blooms late September - October in the Midwest and Eastern United States. Garden mums add color in the fall when few other plants are in peak bloom. Great planted in the perennial garden and in containers on the front porch.
Bloom Time: Early-Midseason

Notable Features: Late Season Color
Growth Habit: Mounding
Homeowner Growing Tips: Plant in full sun in well-draining soil. Water well, keeping in mind that rain or overhead sprinklers may not get much water down past the thick foliage to the soil, especially in a container. For the best chance of perennializing garden mums, be sure to plant as early as possible, especially in colder zones. They are slow to root, so need plenty of time to establish themselves before the ground freezes or they can tend to heave out of the soil over the winter.
Our mums bloom at their natural time without being forced. This ensures a strong and healthy mum that blooms well into the fall!
