Homecoming Mum History.
Homecoming Mums have been a part of Texas history for over 60 years. Dated back to the early 1900's, it has become a part of who we are as Texans. Mizzou is often credited with the first Homecoming event, asking alumni to come back and support the university. They promoted this by throwing a few social gatherings and organizing a parade.

These floral expressions have made their home in Texas and some parts of Oklahoma and New Mexico homecoming is quite a big deal. Leave it to Texas to take things to the next level. As they say everything is bigger in Texas. Enter the Homecoming Mum, which started as a real chrysanthemum adorned with a few basic ribbons in honor of alumni.
