The Sarah P. Duke Gardens is closed to the public for the fall semester, but we don't want you to miss out on the colors of the season. Fall is the ideal time for mums. Below are a collection of flowers from the Charlotte Brody Discovery Garden and elsewhere in Duke Gardens.

Chrysanthemums are native to Asia and northeastern Europe and play a prominent role in Asian gardens, as well as art and culture. Few people grow exhibition mums in the United States, however, and many cultivars are available only through cuttings that devoted mum enthusiasts share with each other.
