  • water dropWater

    Mums, such as the Chrysanthemum 'Salmon Talbot Parade', need to be watered regularly to keep the soil consistently moist but not saturated. Water the plant thoroughly when the top inch of soil feels dry to the touch, usually once every 2-3 days during active growth periods. Depending on temperature and humidity, this could mean watering with roughly 1 gallon per week. During hotter spells, you may need to water more frequently, and less often when it's cooler. Be sure to avoid overhead watering to minimize the risk of fungal diseases.

  • sunLight

    Mums prefer to be positioned in full sunlight to ensure vibrant blooms. They thrive best when they receive at least 6 hours of direct sunlight each day. Choose a spot in the garden or near a window that provides bright, unfiltered light for the majority of the day to promote maximum flowering.

  • thermometerTemperature

    Mums, like the Chrysanthemum 'Salmon Talbot Parade', grow best in cooler conditions and can tolerate temperatures as low as 32°F for short periods. They thrive in temperatures ranging between 60°F and 75°F. However, they will suffer in temperatures above 90°F, so it's crucial to avoid exposing them to excessive heat.

  • scissorsPruning

    Mums should be pruned to encourage a bushier plant and more abundant blooms. Trim back the stems in early summer, by about one inch, and repeat this process if necessary until mid-July. The best time for pruning is after the first signs of new growth and before flower buds develop.

    Garden mums, including Chrysanthemum 'Salmon Talbot Parade', generally do not require frequent repotting and can be repotted every 2 to 3 years or as needed when the plant outgrows its current container.

  • water dropsHumidity & Misting

    Mums prefer moderate humidity levels, ideally between 40% to 60%. They can tolerate lower humidity but will thrive when the ambient humidity is maintained within this preferred range.

  • circleLife cycle

    The Chrysanthemum 'Salmon Talbot Parade', commonly known as the Hardy Garden Mum, begins its life as a seed or cutting, which, once planted, germinates and develops roots and shoots in its initial growth stage. As it enters the vegetative stage, it produces leaves and stems, growing in size and branching out. During the pre-flowering stage, the plant prepares for blooming as bud formation takes place, influenced by shorter day lengths. The flowering stage showcases the plant's vibrant salmon-colored flowers, attracting pollinators and potentially allowing for cross-pollination. Following pollination, if it occurs, seeds may be produced, completing the reproductive cycle. The plant then either enters dormancy during colder months or may die back, depending on the environmental conditions and care provided.

  • sproutPropogation

    • Propogation time


    • The Chrysanthemum 'Salmon Talbot Parade', often referred to as a mum, is commonly propagated by vegetative means, particularly through cuttings. The ideal time for taking cuttings is in spring when the plant begins active growth. To propagate using this method, a gardener would select a healthy, non-flowering shoot and cut a 4-6 inch (approximately 10-15 cm) long piece just below the node. The lower leaves would be stripped off, and the cut end might be dipped in a rooting hormone to encourage root development. The prepared cutting is then inserted into a moist potting mix and kept under high humidity and indirect light until roots have established, which typically takes a few weeks. Once rooted, the new chrysanthemum plants can be gradually hardened off before being transplanted to their final location.
