Mum’s the word at Bellingrath in November, when the Gardens are decorated with the 57th annual Fall Outdoor Cascading Chrysanthemums display, the nation’s largest outdoor cascade chrysanthemums show.

The Horticultural Staff sets out the display in late October, and the chrysanthemums remain on display through the end of November.

The Southeast Tourism Society named Bellingrath’s Chrysanthemums Show one of the STS Top 20 Events in the Southeast in November 2019.

Hundreds of colorful, four-foot-long cascades of chrysanthemums are hung on bridges and balconies and set out in topiaries, baskets and containers throughout the Gardens. Guests may view thousands of mums in the flower beds in the fall colors of yellow, red, bronze, lavender and white.

Bellingrath’s Fall Outdoor Cascading Chrysanthemum display takes more than nine months to create and is a true labor of love by Bellingrath’s expert Horticultural Staff.
