Still time to plant mums as perrenials

Anonymous added on September 13, 2015 | Answered

A friend just bought me some lovely mums as a thank you gift. I have a place I want to plant them in my flower bed but I'd like them to survive the winter. It's September and I'm afraid the roots won't have time to get established. What do you recommend? (I live in zone 5b)
