Mums that still blossom in winter -15C // 4F



Can you believe it? Even I couldn't believe my eyes. Damn cold and this yellow, cheering flowers are up and maybe not so happy, but still alive.
If you don't know mums flowers (Chrysanthemum) - this is perennial in the Asteraceae family.
They are usually either garden hardy or exhibition - so, I understand this is the very garden hardy mums cheering us up.

Welcome them in the garden for winter joy and an insect repellent effect throughout the year.

You may see beatiful white muums in the conservatory pictured by me at the beginning of December.
