Many botanical gardens and even city parks show off plantings of mums in the fall, so be sure to check on locations close to home. Some places go above and beyond to create eye-popping displays, such as the chrysanthemum festivals at Longwood Gardens in Kennett Square, Pennsylvania (Nov 1-21), Bellingrath Gardens and Home in Theodore, Alabama (Nov 12-25), and the Portland Japanese Garden in Oregon (Oct 9-17). The National Chrysanthemum Society also hosts an annual show (this year at Sherman Library and Gardens, Corona del Mar, California, Oct 30-31), and local chapters put on smaller shows across the country; visit mums.org to learn more. But if your love of mums can lure you across the Atlantic, then the Chrysanthema Lahr festival in Lahr, Germany, is a can’t-miss event, held from Oct 16-Nov 7 this year.

The 7th annual Jardins, Jardin show in the Tuileries, Paris, took place June 4-6 and, as usual, the French managed to stage perfect weather to go with the perfect setting -- for the preview evening the sun shone and champagne (courtesy of Laurent Perrier) flowed. Many exhibitors seemed to have been influenced by a surreal mood and an Alice-through-the-Looking-Glass effect rippled throughout the show.
