Mums year round?

Just had the front yard re-landscaped. (Another shot as spending my kids inheritance)

Anyways, my wife bought two pots of flowering Mums for added accent. The two red pots in the picture. She plans on transferring them to clay pots.

Question, can Mums be kept over the winter? And if so where and how would you store them? Or do you just throw them out as winter approaches? As you can see we have little or no knowledge of flowers or plants.

I’ve always just left them out till they die and then toss them. Then get new ones. I think if you plant them in the spring, they’ll come back next spring. If you just planted them now, then they won’t.

It also depends on your location. In my area, we planted some mums that we bought in containers and they came back the next year. However, they only did that for one year as I assumed they were winter-killed.

We always leave ours planted in the ground, most years they come back but sometimes they don't.

The tag inside said year round in any container. I'll try it as Tolyn tried his and see what happens.
