Heart melting fragrance, spectrum of colours, divine atmosphere all combine at the Hamilton Fall Garden & Mum Show
Chrysanthemums traditionally take centre 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 Chrysanthemum are just perfect for those warm cosy moments. Chrysanthemums bring swathes 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.
Gage Park Greenhouse 9am to 7pm daily
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 2012 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.
