Traditional Chrysanthemums are available year round and come in the cushion and daisy varieties.
A pot of blooming chrysanthemums adds indoor or outdoor color, depending on your location and the season.
Originating in East Asia, the humble chrysanthemum has been growing in China for more than 2500 years. It is used for medicinal and flavouring purposes, as well as for its beautiful blooms. In Japan, the flower is very symbolic, with the Royal Family said to rule from the Chrysanthemum Throne. It has been their national flower for the past 100 years and is a symbol of happiness and longevity.
In the late 18th century, the flower was imported and hybridised in Europe. This has led to the amazing diversity in colour and shape we see today.
