I bought some hardy mums to plant. When do I apply straw to cover the plant for winter?

You shouldn't have to cover them in zone 6 if you plant them in the ground and water them during dry spells. But if they are in a container or you just want to be sure they come back, you can cover them with straw or just mulch really well after a freeze or two.
