The FLORIST MUMS are in their prime right now, with end-of-season flowering soon approaching. These two varieties are especially good for floral displays, and compliment each other in the arrangement for today. They can last upwards of 4 weeks in an arrangement. They will continue to open up, with blooms as large as 5" across. Strip the stems of all greenery that are in the preservative-prepared water.

Intermediate Incurve . Class 5    Flowers in this class are
not as incurving as the regular incurve and florets are
shorter and present a more open appearance

Decorative . Class 4   These blooms are more
flattened with florets presenting a more open appearance
with some reflexing and some partly incurving.  They are
particularly useful as cut flowers
