Plant Features

Baby Tears Perennial Mums are a charming addition to any garden, boasting delicate, button-sized blooms with pure white petals that may show faint pink outer tones as they mature. These mums form a mounded habit with dense, pompon-like flowers that brighten up fall gardens with their vibrant white color, contrasting beautifully against the green foliage. Not only do they serve as a stunning aesthetic appeal for borders, edgings, and as a focal point, but they also attract bees, butterflies, and other beneficial insects, making them a perfect choice for butterfly gardens, cottage gardens, and any pollinator-friendly space. While they make excellent cut flowers, it's important to note that they are not pet friendly. For optimal growth, Baby Tears Perennial Mums require at least 8 hours of sunlight, consistent moisture, and well-drained soil, thriving even in sandy conditions. A boost of fertilizer when transplanted and once every spring will keep these mums flourishing.
