Fall is a wonderful time of year to introduce some new flowers to your home. Among the season’s most popular are chrysanthemums. Lovingly referred to as the queen of the fall flowers, the “mum” is symbolic for so many reasons. Mums symbolize joy, life, friendship, luck, and rebirth.
Part of its beauty is its resilience in the face of a sudden drop in temperatures. There’s something almost magical about a flower that brims with color and livens up the landscape when skies are decidedly darker and the air considerably cooler. Fall’s queen earns its nickname for good reason! While other flowers lose their luster at this time of year, the mum is only just coming into her own.
Mums make beautiful additions to festive bouquets, add eye-catching detail to fall tablescapes, liven up the porch, brighten up flower beds, and bring a little color to stacks of hay. You can also use them around the house to make any space look a little more cheerful. There are few flowers more versatile than this cool-weather accent. Here’s a look at what makes it so noteworthy.
