Small and unassuming, the button chrysanthemum, sometimes referred to as the button pom, or button pompon, presents itself as a round, flat head (like a button), usually in greens or yellows. These small varieties of mums make great accent pieces in mixed bouquets because they add color and texture, plus a shape and size that magnifies the beauty of the other flowers in the bouquet. These button mums featured in our Day Tripper Bouquet present a beautiful addition to the green foliage provided while maximizing the beauty of the flowers included in this display.
Lavender Button Mums
Red Rover Mums
Red rover mums are characterized by a resemblance to large varieties of daisies, with a tough yellow center disk surrounded by red petals in a stunning starburst design. This sunny look lends its cheerful appearance to fall floral designs to include deep burgundy hues and bright sunny yellows. Fall has never looked so colorful! Our Autumn Bouquet is a perfect example of how fascinating these red rover chrysanthemums can be.
Decorating With Chrysanthemums
As fall approaches, adding mums to your home’s decor is a quick, simple way to bring a touch of fall into your surroundings. Use a hollowed pumpkin as a planter for a festive twist, or design mums in a ceramic pitcher or silver urn for a more classy look on your home’s mantle or coffee table. You can also use mums to design a wreath, making your front door fall-ready. Of course, the simplest decorating scheme is to place some of our beautiful chrysanthemum designs throughout your home and enjoy all season.
