Good service

Plant arrived in good condition. I put it in the ground immediately. Root ball adequate, came in timely manner.

Plants all arrived with good moisture, healthy, and ready to plant.

VERY Hardy & Beautiful

This mum arrived very healthy, & grew immediately. After 1 year, I needed to transplant it to another larger pot....& the transplant was pretty brutal. Since it grew so well, it was extremely root bound. I basically carved up the plant to remove it, then trimmed it down to about 3. Surprisingly, it started to grow back should see it after only 1 month! It looks strong & healthy, & I've already had to pinch it back again. The bloom colors are as pretty as the GrowJoy pic, & it produces a lot of them. GrowJoy packs better THAN ANYONE, & their plants are so healthy. I highly recommend this plant & this company.

Didn't survive the winter

I ordered several varieties at once and planted them at the recommended time. This and one other variety (Irish Linen) did not come back after the winter. I looked carefully at the USDA hardiness zone as we are technically 6b, but I always look for plants in the 4-5 zone because of our elevation. The plants were beautifully packaged - I just am not sure just how hardy it really is. We did have a wet winter (rain) so maybe it rotted. The others (Centerpiece, Cheerleader, Lantern Glow, Starlet, Grape Glow & Little Rascal) all came back - a few more vigorous than others, but they appeared.

Autumn Sunset Perennial Mum (Live Plant) 2.5-Inch Pot

The Autumn Sunset Perennial Mum Plant arrived healthy. beautiful flowers. Unfortunately the plant died over the winter.

GrowJoy: We are so sorry to hear that. Which Zone are you in?

Beautiful fall color

I ordered two of these Autumn Sunset Mum plants and they arrived well packed and in great condition. I planted them in May so they could establish a strong root system in time for winter. Pinched them back in early July and they are approx. 8 tall right now (early Sept). They just started blooming and although the color contrast isn't as vibrant on my plants vs the pictures, they are still beautiful flowers.

Sun Mum

Plant (1) arrived very healthy and soil well watered in a very secure container, even better than Burpee. I gave them a drink same day I received my plants (this one and plus 3 pinks) and planted them the next day. This plant is thriving with new leaves in about 1 week after I planted. Very happy with the products so far. Just wait for them to bloom in a few months. Will update with pix later. thanks GrowJoy.

Healthy plants...can't wait for the blooms to start!

Plants arrived in excellent condition - they were packed carefully and no damage incurred. They were thirsty so I watered them before planting. Plants have been in the ground two weeks now and have grown. They look very healthy and hopefully they have lots of beautiful flowers in the fall.

Outstanding Mum

Wonderful Autumn Sunset Perennial Mum plant and grew to 26" x 25". However, I did not do an early pinch. Loaded with flaming flowers. A knockout for sure!

Autumn Sunset Mum

Plant I received looks healthy and robust. It is a good 6 inches, much larger than I expected it to be. Not in bloom yet so can not comment of the blossom.

From LUCY | May 18, 2015

Fast grower, beautiful flowers - FAST!

I bought 7 Mums from GrowJoy. 2 months ago, all of them were planted in a row, along my sidewalk, in identical conditions. This 'Autumn Sunset' Mum is growing faster and larger than all of the other Mums. It has also started flowering before any of the other Mums have even set buds. By the way, the flowers ARE as pretty as they are in the photos! So far, the flowers are about 2 inches in diameter. There are a LOT more buds developing. I'm thinking that the flowers may get bigger as the plant continues to grow in size. This is a VERY pretty Mum!

Received Mums in great shape, and they are doing fine. Just waiting for the blooms.

Autumn Sunset

I have purchased several Perennial Mums from GrowJoy as well as many perennial plants. They are all packaged well and arrive in great condition. Some of the Mums had buds on them and they are already blooming, what an extra special treat! I've been purchasing from GrowJoy for a few years now and I've never been disappointed. The plants are healthy, in great shape with good strong root systems. I cannot wait to see all of these Mums in bloom!!
