Mums have been so overused for fall decorations that they're practically a dime a dozen. Consider 3 native plant alternatives each in their own quart sized pot in this kit. Fiery red flowers of Helenium pair well with golden Heliopsis flowers and bright yellow fall foliage on the Amsonia. As an added bonus the Amsonia will produce light blue flowers in spring. This is one magical plant collection that will enliven your fall and provide a great food source for many hungry pollinators late in the season.
