Bold, beautiful and daring—this mammoth mum is all three. If your landscape needs a lush sweep of color, look no further than the Red Daisy Mammoth Mum. This perennial's 3-4" flower heads nod above stems that can grow up to 3' tall over a perfectly spherical cloud of deeply colored, aromatic foliage. Research gardeners at the University of Minnesota bred the Red Daisy to last through the harshest winters so it'll return season after season with its intensely vivid blooms. Butterflies will return season after season as well, but deer will steer clear.

Provide adequate spacing to get the full effect of the ball-shaped appearance. Requires ample moisture during growing season. Mums grown under moisture stress do not achieve the desired size. Set in ground at same level as growing in the pot.
Mulch in late fall to prevent frost heave as winter weather freezes then thaws.
Daisy type, 3 - 4" across
Aromatic, alternate deeply lobed, dark green leaves, gray underneath. Shrub type.
Minimal care: no pinching, pruning or deadheading.
Well drained, moist, humus enriched soil.
