Beautiful Frilly White Mums flowers look brown when they bloom
I bought 4 very expensive mums last year and this year they came back very healthy and have had plenty of buds on them which I have kept picked off until the last couple of weeks. These mums are called Crisantemo de Jardin or "Cockatoo" garden mum and had a beautiful frilly white many layered flower with a yellow center. The buds are beautiful and look white, but as they mature and begin to bloom the white petals look brown and ugly, though they are still frilly and beautifully shaped. Does anyone know what to do to keep this from happening?
