Ball Mums Releases Top Garden Mum Varieties by Color

WEST CHICAGO, ILLINOIS — Ball Seed knows that Garden Mums are a crop driven by color. Years of collected data for trials, performance and sales has helped determine the percentages of each color class that makes up the top mixes on a national level.

“Ball Seed often gets questions about the top varieties by color, and like any plant question, the answer can be regional and impacted by crop timing and the anticipated retail sales window,” says Linda Kiscellus, Business Manager for Business Manager for Ball Mums.

With this understanding, the Ball Mums team has compiled all trial and performance data, and is pleased to share the Top Garden Mum Varieties By Color. The following list shows the popular color classes, with two or more top performers recommended in order to cover multiple timing ranges from early- to late-season garden mum varieties.
