    The mums you buy in the store, already flowering and fully grown are shipped in a peat of some kind so that the shipping costs are less. If you plant them they will not grow roots into the soil before a freeze and will likely die. If young mums (before they flower) are planted in dirt in a pot, then transplanted into your garden they will come back year after year. Better to buy mums that are grown local (and in dirt). However if you buy a young mum early in the season and put in dirt right away so that roots establish, it will probably come back.

    You have to follow it

    Setting up mum indoor near a window, that receives bright, indirect sunlight all day, or place them outdoors where they can receive five hours of morning sunlight and afternoon shade. ...

    Check the mums' soil moisture daily, and water the mums when the top 1 inch of soil begins to dry.

    I hope it helps you to grow you plant effectively... Good Luck!!

    Mums are annuals. they aren't perennials. Perennials come back, annuals don't.

      Mums you buy at big box stores are labeled annuals because they were planted in peat (instead of dirt) and they are already blooming so not likely to come back. Mums are perennials if it is done right as discussed below.
