Origin of Chrysanthemum
The flower, which originates from China and Japan, has been incredibly popular in Asia for centuries. From around 1700 Europeans could also enjoy this golden delight. The chrysanthemum’s name derives from the Greek: chrys (gold) and anthemon (flower). The flower’s original colour was a rich golden yellow.
Shapes and colours
Limited to a yellow beginning, there is now a truly wide colour palette available. Interiors can now be given a warm glow with the colours gold, bronze or dark orange tones, and shades of green are also very popular. Or opt for subtle and calm using chrysanthemums in shades of white, soft pinks or purple. If that wasn’t enough choice, there are also many different flower shapes: from single to double flowered, and from spider to pom-pom shapes.
