Last fall of 2020, a local Plano FB moms group, mentioned  mum plant that was now in stock at Costco in Plano.  So on my next Costco visit I picked one up – they were quite large and a bargain at $10 each.  In the winter I trimmed it back to about 6 inches and it happily grew and bloomed again this spring.     These little flower are so beautiful when viewed close up with a macro lens – the red to yellow hues are so dynamic against the green florals.  Enjoy!
