Heart of Chrysanthemum

Spider Chrysanthemum Macro

Did you know that Chrysanthemums have only existed in the Western world since the 17th century? But look East…

In Japan, the Emperor’s seal is a stylized Chrysanthemum, and in China, Chrysanthemums are so much a part of the culture that an entire city is named Chu-Hsien:  Chrysanthemum City!

FTD is also anxious to remind you that Chrysanthemums are the official Australian flower of Mother’s Day, because of their nickname: Mums.
