Plant Features

The Penera Purple Belgian Mum is an early summer-blooming variety that presents a visually striking display with its dense, tightly packed arrangement of vibrant purple flowers. The plant forms a near-perfect sphere, a testament to the careful cultivation it requires to achieve such symmetry. This particular variety starts blooming in mid-August and continues to flourish through the end of September. Its deep purple blossoms cover the plant so thoroughly that no foliage or stems are visible, making it a favored choice for ornamental gardening due to its bold and prolonged flowering period.

Belgian Mum Plant Care Instructions: Keep plants moist and well feed. A weekly application of a water soluble fertilizer works best. Snip off any flowers that start blooming early. When the flowers start showing color in the fall, stop fertilizing. Continue to keep the plants moist. After the first hard frost, the plant can be cut back to the ground. A heavy application of mulch is beneficial.
