Enjoy Beautiful, Long-Lasting Mums this Fall

The fall season brings us so many fascinating colors and textures, but none are quite as endearing as the chrysanthemum. With its wide range of species and varieties to choose from, the look and style of mums can vary drastically, given your decor an eclectic look. Mums’ colors are as different as their varieties, ranging from bright, bold reds, yellows and oranges to deep, sultry burgundys, purple and one bursting with color and energy everywhere you look. Send beautiful mums to friends and loved ones throughout the D.C. area to celebrate special fall occasions or just to let them know you’re thinking of them. Since these flowers are es, and even white and cream. A beautiful bouquet of mums can be the difference between a typical fall season low-maintenance and easy to care for, your recipients will be able to enjoy their new fall blooms for months. The floral experts at Conklyn’s Florist are happy to walk you through which blooms might be perfect for you and how to care for them once they’re in your home.  Read More about Enjoy Beautiful, Long-Lasting Mums this Fall »
