About

Mum’s the word at Bellingrath Gardens and Home in November, when it’s time for the 56th Annual Fall Outdoor Cascading Chrysanthemums, the nation’s largest outdoor display of the signature blooms of the season. The Gardens and Home will be filled with hundreds of colorful, four-foot-long cascades of chrysanthemums on bridges and balconies, along with the traditional displays of mums in baskets and containers. Guests will also see columns of mums and bedded plants along the Great Lawn’s dramatic border, in the rich fall colors of red, yellow, bronze, lavender and white. The Southeast Tourism Society has named the display one of the STS Top 20 Events in the South for November 2019. The display is set out in the last week of October. Bellingrath’s Horticulture staff works nearly year-round on the cascading mums, which are meticulously cultivated in our greenhouses. The cascades are created when three plants are potted into five-gallon containers and then placed onto growing racks during the summer months. The mums are sheared every few weeks throughout the growing season in order to create fuller plants.
