- Beautiful late season color
- Great mounding habit
'Thera Red' produces vivid red flowers that work well in containers or in the landscape. Blooms in early 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.

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.
