Chrysanthemums (or Mums as they are often referred to) are a family of flowers whose blooms remind us of beautiful fall days, however, with the exception of a few color options, they are available year round. Mums come in a wide range of colors, petal types and sizes making them an incredibly versatile flower - it is impossible not to find a type of Mum that would work in any type of floral arrangement. And if that isn't enough, Mums are also a very affordable flower - making mums one of the most popular flowers sold for all types of designs. Mums can be used in any type of floral design, can work well in flower foam or water based centerpieces, they look great out of water for extended periods of time, are extremely hardy and quite long lived. If cared for properly, most mums should last about 8 - 10 days, often times more.
Red Button Mums
Button Mums are the smallest member of the Mum family, with each stem sporting multiple small blooms about 1/2 to 1.5 inches in diameter. Button Mums provide volume as well as a unique textural element that pairs well with just about any type of flower in most floral designs. They are commonly used as a filler flower, but could be used individually in small bud vases for more relaxed farm or wildflower themed events. Our Wholesale Red Button Mums are only available in the late Summer through the Fall and are cut and shipped straight from the farm - and we 100% guarantee their quality and freshness. Once you receive your Red Button Mums, remove any leafy foliage that will fall below the water line, cut approximately 1/2 - 1 inch off the bottom of the stems and place them in fresh, cool water, preferably with flower food. It is perfectly normal for Mums to look thirsty or "tired" upon arrival. They will perk up once they receive a "fresh cut" to their stems and have time to drink up fresh water. We recommend you receive your Mums 2-3 days before your event.
