It is a culture event - distinctly not the American pop culture.

Wow! Thanks for posting these, I would have never seen them otherwise. Love the huge Mums in photo #6. And the tall Mum is an interesting arrangement. I can't figure out how they did that.

The flowers remind me of Dahlia or Peony.
Thank you for sharing

emmarene, I love Dahlia and Penoy too. These Chrysanthemum have comparably sized flowers, but the green part of each is significantly smaller. They are all pot cultivated. Traditionally, each pot contains one stem and one flower. The flower blooms in fall. The tradition dates back thousands of years. If you have time, check out the movie "curse of golden flower". Despite the bad name, I like the movie. It is a sad one though.

Nice photos.

Surely you're aware though that flower shows are commonplace in the U.S. including mum shows (there is one in Omaha for instance that runs through Sunday). More on the 2013 national society show can be found at www.mums.org.

Yeah, I think mums are very popular in the US too. Walmart, etc, always have them in the fall. Many people buy them, but most cannot keep them over winter.

How many of those varieties are dependable garden plants that could survive an average Midwest or Northeast winter?

Few to none, I suspect. They look like plants for sheltered locations or greenhouse culture.

The cultivation involves two environments - indoor overwinter and outdoor over summer. No, they will not naturalize or produce seed.The method of cultivation is actually easy. You need to have a heated house for winter and a back yard for summer :) Mums are dramatically different from many orchids, green house is not used. They will not grow as wild in green house.

Very pretty photos, Juju, it's nice to see some flowers when things are turning brown and going dormant here in New England. I have some scraggy mum blooms hanging on, but we are in a moderate drought so they aren't doing great this fall.

What camera do you use? Your pics are nice and sharp.
