Heart melting fragrance, spectrum of colours, divine atmosphere all combine at the Hamilton Fall Garden & Mum Show
Chrysanthemums traditionally take stage in the autumn as the sumptuous palette of the season revolves around orange, brown, green, yellow and red, with a hint of pink and purple. People want to snuggle up indoors as daylight fades and Chrysanthemums are just perfect for those warm cozy moments. Chrysanthemums bring swaths of colour to the end of summer.
The Mum Show, as most people refer to the show, started in 1920 and has seen many changes over the years. A new theme each year has taken us through dramatic scenes of flowers, colours and displays.
The displays are a combination of cascading varieties in baskets, pillars and pyramids. Equally impressive are the single stem Exhibition types, some with individual bloom diameters of over eight inches across. Combined with the bush varieties, the greenhouse is full of the colours of fall.
The Chrysanthemum Show is an amazing floral display created by some of Hamilton’s finest horticulture staff. The display is a breathtaking feature of over 200 varieties of Chrysanthemums, and more than 75,000 blooms.
In 2011 the Hamilton Fall Garden & Mum Show took place in the newly built greenhouse facility. Over 20,000 square feet of display space houses the show. The new greenhouse facility allowed for the creation of a new design and layout. A new children’s area, live demonstration area and an expanded vendor area was created. In addition to the many new features, the greenhouse facility allows for an expanded display area with larger isles and multiple areas to rest and enjoy the beauty of the many displays.
