Ok I have recently planted mums in my flower bed. And would like to know instead of using leaves, or mulch to winterize can I use a good layer of pine needles?

In cold locations like Fort Blackmore, shallow rooted mums can be mulched in the fall using about 3-4" of leaves, wood chips, pine needles, evergreen boughs or straw around the base of the mums.
