The Phipps Conservatory Features Chrysanthemums

mums As a part of the “Chocolate” exhibit at the Phipps Conservatory and Botanical Gardens in Philadelphia, chrysanthemums are taking on the spotlight as a new fall addition to the exhibit.

A kaleidoscope of chrysanthemums are on display as a part of the Fall Flower Show, which opened this weekend. There are standard-size mums, potted mums, cascading mums and spider mums. There are also some unusual varieties of mums featured like the disbud mum — they have a four-foot high stalks and one single mum bloom at the top, about 5 to 6 inches in diameter. A spectrum of colour will also greet visitors when they go through the conservatory: red, yellow, purple, orange and pink.

Michele Frey McCann, the Phipps’ exhibit manager and designer says, “Everyone loves the mums. It’s pretty spectacular to see.”
