Mum's the Word


Did you know that Perino's Home and Garden Center grows almost 15,000 mums for the fall season?! We take special attention to detail in growing our mum crop to ensure that we have the largest, fluffiest ball of color in the greater New Orleans area! Shop our home grown mums in store now every day from 9a-5p.

Caring for Mums

  • WATER. WATER. WATER. WATER. WATER. Mums need water every day, but it is always good to double check the soil and weight of the pot. Always water the roots not the foliage.

  • Mums can survive in either sun or shade (outside only). If you want the blooms to open faster, you can put them in full sun. On the flip side, you can start them in the sun and then move them to the shade for longer lasting blooms.

  • Mums are technically perennials, so if you so desire as to have some spring blooming mums, trim them back and keep them watered for an encore in next year!

As always, please contact us immediately as soon as you start to see decline or have any questions. For diagnosis, bring in a sample along with a photo to the store during business hours. If you are unable to get to the store, you may email us at
