Plant Features

The The Penera Red Belgian Mum is an early summer-blooming variety that offers a lush display with its dense, tightly packed arrangement of radiant red flowers. This plant blooms into a near-perfect sphere, indicating the level of attentive care it requires to maintain such precise growth and form. The blooming season for this variety begins in mid-August, with the vivid red flowers continuing to make a dramatic statement through the end of September. The rich red hue of the blossoms completely obscures any foliage or stems, creating a stunning visual effect that makes it a standout choice for decorative gardening, celebrated for its vibrant color and extended blooming 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.
