What kind of flowers are these?

Asked April 18, 2018, 10:28 AM EDT

Hello I went to dinner with a few ladies that I graduated high school with. One of the ladies gave us cut flowers as a gift. I don't know what kind of flowers they are and would love to plant some in my backyard. My husband placed them within a plant that was already in our backyard. Thank you!

Those flowers are called chrysanthemums (mums). The Missouri Botanical Garden has a good guide to growing mums in a home garden: http://www.missouribotanicalgarden.org/Portals/0/Gardening/Gardening%20Help/Factsheets/Chrysanthemum...
