    I planted this last fall. This fall it came up with 3 distinct colors on different parts of the plant. I KNOW it was ALL Yellow when I planted it. My guess... is there where bits of the other color plants in the pot too. Looks really cool. 011.JPG 005.JPG

    I have seen mums revert to a basic color after a year, but that doesn't seem to be what's happened here. Nice combo!
    A daisy mum is just about the most cheerful flower ever. Perfect for you, @Carol Dee.

    I had a rose once change from yellow to red flowers seemed magical. Then I read about grafting and rootstock taking over

    Probably a chimera (multiple cell lines in the same plant). I don't think they usually graft mums. I had it happen with a pansy once.
