    Do you mean perennial? Some are , some are not. Refer to the marker in the new plant before purchasing to know if that one is perennial or not.

    I have a perennial "hardy Mum" planted on the side of my house. They are big and beautiful. Looks like a bush most of the time but then in the Fall the flowers come out. It's 4 yrs old (I think).

    In some areas Mums will return. When you purchase them make sure you are buying ones that will come back yearly. I live in Michigan. They do come back and get wider and more plentiful bloomed each season!

    Check with your local nursery to be sure to buy and plant Mums which are perennial for your area.

    go to a dedicated plant /garden center....or ask a neighbor for starts. i've seen tags removed and or swapped to a different pot.

    Mums are perennials. If planted in the ground they come back every year.

    No, but they can be coaxed into blooming twice in a season with care.
