CHRYSANTHEMUM

Best For: Bouquets and arrangements

Scent: None

In Season: Year-round

Price Range: Inexpensive

Floral Fact: Mums come in several varieties, which determine their size and color. The name literally means “golden flower.”

 

With a history that dates back to 15th century B.C., chrysanthemum mythology is filled with a multitude of stories and symbolism. Named from the Greek prefix ‘chrys-‘ meaning golden (its original color) and ‘-anthemion’, meaning flower, years of artful cultivation have produced a full range of colors, from white to purple to red. Daisy-like with a typically yellow center and a decorative pompon, chrysanthemums symbolize optimism and joy. They are the official flower of the city of Chicago. In Japan, there’s even a Festival of Happiness to celebrate this flower each year.

A symbol of the sun, the Japanese consider the orderly unfolding of the chrysanthemum’s petals to represent perfection, and Confucius once suggested they be used as an object of meditation. It’s said that a single petal of this celebrated flower placed at the bottom of a wine glass will encourage a long and healthy life.
