Growers of Fides Oro’s Mystic Mum line of chrysanthemums now have nine new color choices in addition to the 25 colors already available. Bred especially for large flowers, a flexible, mounding growth habit, outstanding color retention and long shelf life, Mystic Mums have an additional benefit: easier scheduling for growers. Depending upon the cultivar, flowering begins very early and continues late into the season under natural conditions.

‘Daybreak Bright Yellow’ (very early) — Rich, yellow decorative flowers with outstanding color retention.
‘Daybreak Pure White’ (very early) — Pure white decorative flowers for the very early natural season market. Excellent flower quality with a bit of an upright mounding habit.
