Ball Mums Releases Top Garden Mum Varieties By Color

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

“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.

With this understanding, the Ball Mums team has compiled all trial and performance data, and is pleased to share the Top Garden Mum Varieties By Color. The following list shows the popular color classes, with two or more top performers recommended in order to cover multiple timing ranges from early- to late-season garden mum varieties.

  • YELLOW: Sundance Yellow, Yellow Tang, Honeyblush Yellow
  • ORANGE: Pumpkin Pie Orange, Sunset Orange
  • PURPLE: Stellar Purple, Venus Purple, Plumberry Purple
  • WHITE: Celestial White, Butter N Cream White, Bridal White
  • RED: Radiant Red, Red Ryder, Five Alarm Red
  • PINK: Pink Frenzy, Stellar Pink, Perfectly Pink
  • BRONZE: Katelli Bronze, Copper Coin Bronze

“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.”
