New Report Lists Top Garden Mum Varieties By Color

Ball Seed has compiled all trial and performance data for its garden mums and released its “Top Garden Mum Varieties By Color.”

Ball Seed knows that garden mums are a crop driven by color. Years of collected trials data, performance and sales have helped determine the percentages of each color class that makes up the top mixes on a national level.

The following list shows the popular color classes, with two or more top performers recommended  to cover multiple timing ranges from early- to late-season garden mum varieties.

YELLOW
‘Sundance Yellow’
‘Yellow Tang’
‘Honeyblush Yellow’

PURPLE
‘Stellar Purple’
‘Venus Purple’
‘Plumberry Purple’

PINK
‘Pink Frenzy’
‘Stellar Pink’
‘Perfectly Pink’

ORANGE

BRONZE

WHITE
‘Celestial White’
‘Butter N Cream White’

“Ball Seed often gets questions about the top varieties by color, and like any plant question, the answer can be regional and impacted by crop timing and the anticipated retail sales window,” says Linda Kiscellus, business manager for Ball Mums.

“The varieties we’ve listed have vibrancy and durability,” says Cindy Drumgool, the new Ball Mums product manager, who brings 20+ years of production and retail experience to the team. “So when the weather works against sales, these mums will still look great and have consumer appeal.”

In addition to this color trends and performance list, Ball Mums recently released its 2019 New Variety Supplement brochure. To view it online or download a copy, visit the following link online: www.ballseed.com/virtual/2019_mums/index.aspx.
