    Mums, including the Chrysanthemum 'Peach Enbee Wedding', should be watered regularly to maintain evenly moist soil, as they do not like to dry out completely. In general, water them deeply once a week with about 1 gallon of water per plant, adjusting for rainfall and temperature. During hot spells or if they are in containers, they may need water more frequently. It's best to water early in the day to allow foliage to dry, reducing the risk of disease. Avoid overhead watering to minimize wetting the foliage, and instead water at the base of the plant.

  • sunLight

    Mums prefer full sun conditions to thrive. Place your Chrysanthemum 'Peach Enbee Wedding' in a spot where it can receive at least 6 hours of direct sunlight daily. Some light afternoon shade can be beneficial in extremely hot climates to prevent scorching. Avoid heavily shaded areas as mums will not bloom as profusely without sufficient light.

    Mums are cold hardy in USDA zones 5 through 9 and prefer temperatures between 50 and 70°F. They can survive brief periods of colder weather down to 20°F but should be protected from prolonged freezing temperatures. Mums perform best when daytime temperatures are mild and nights are cool, which encourages vigorous growth and flowering.

  • circleLife cycle

    The Chrysanthemum 'Peach Enbee Wedding,' commonly known as Hardy Garden Mum, begins its life cycle as a seed or more commonly as a rooted cutting, which when planted in well-draining soil and given proper conditions, will germinate or establish roots. The seedling or young plant then undergoes vegetative growth, developing a robust system of stems and leaves. As it matures, the plant enters the bud initiation stage, generally triggered by shorter day lengths, where flower buds start to form. Following bud development, the plant blooms, showcasing its characteristic peach-colored flowers, a stage that can last several weeks with proper care. After blooming, the plant sets seeds if pollinators are present and conditions allow for fertilization. The Hardy Garden Mum is a perennial, so after the flowering season it will go dormant for the winter, preserving energy in its root system to regrow in the spring.

      Spring-Early Summer

    • The most popular method of propagation for the Chrysanthemum 'Peach Enbee Wedding,' commonly known as the Mum, is through cuttings. This is typically performed in late spring to early summer when the plant is actively growing. To propagate, you would take a healthy stem cutting about 4 to 6 inches (approximately 10 to 15 cm) long, ensuring it includes several sets of leaves. The lower leaves are removed, and the cut end can be dipped in rooting hormone to encourage root development. Then the cutting is planted in a moist, well-draining potting mix. It should be kept under high humidity, which can be achieved by covering it with a plastic bag or dome and placed in indirect sunlight until roots have established, usually within two to three weeks. After rooting, the new plants can be transferred to larger pots or directly into the garden.
