An interesting tidbit is that some claim that the name ‘Football Mum’ was derived from one of America’s favorite fall sports… FOOTBALL! For MANY years football fans have pinned these flowers to their jackets as it was believed that the flowers brought good luck to their home team. To this day football mums (also known as ‘homecoming mums’) are widely popular in the Southwest (especially in Texas and Oklahoma).

Description: These LARGE football mums are grown in California and are available in yellow, white, lavender, and bronze. The flower itself stands about 24” tall and the blooms measure about 4” to 4.5” in diameter (they will continue to open a little more once in water).

Options: Select up to 2 colors from the drop down menus or select ‘assorted colors’ and let the farms assemble a mixture of colors for you.

Availability: Football mums are available year-round from our flower farms in California.

This package consists of 50 stems of football mums carefully packed and shipped directly to your door.
Product Notes
Orders for wholesale flowers and football mums can be placed up to 60 days in advance; however, we do require all orders be placed at least 10 days prior to your desired delivery date.

We highly recommend our customers schedule football mums for delivery 3 days prior to their event. Football mums are shipped with open blooms, but they will continue to open with time. Football mums are VERY long lasting wholesale flowers and with proper care can last up to several weeks. Please visit our flower care section for complete care instructions.
The flowers that I ordered for my son’s wedding were more than spectacular!!! They were so beautiful… everyone was talking about them the whole day… I can’t thank you enough! So easy to order… delivered right on time… perfect in every way. I hope to arrange for a few more weddings. I will certainly order again without any hesitation! – Alyce
