A few months ago, I bought two red mums, not bronze, from Aldi. They died, so I just tossed them to the side and, all but forgotten about them until this morning, when I spotted a few red buds starting to bloom. I’m soo glad I didn’t just throw them away. All they needed was a lot of water.
Aldi will sometimes sell all the dead plants (they just need lots of water) for only 49 cents. If you see them, you should grab a few.
