​Exact bloom times may varry depending on weather conditions.  For peak bloom times, visit Mum Watch at Bellingrath.org in early November.  

Hundreds of colorful, four-foot long cascades of chrysanthemums are displayed on bridges and balconies, in baskets and containers through the Gardens. Guests can enjoy the columns of mums and thousands of mums in the flower beds in the fall colors of yellow, red, bronze, lavender and white. The Great Lawn’s dramatic border is a feast for the eyes.

Bellingrath’s Mum Show is the nation’s largest outdoor chrysanthemum display. All of the cascades are grown at Bellingrath. Moving the cascades into the gardens is one of the most spectacular horticultural events of the year. It takes more than nine months to grow a single crop – a true labor of love by Bellingrath’s expert growers.
