Chrysanthemums are beautiful frilly flowers with many fluffy petals, and are regarded as the most popular Autumn flower. Often called ‘mums’ or ‘chryssies’, they come in a variety of vibrant colours and sizes, and hail from the daisy family. In Australia they traditionally denote maternal love, making them a fantastic gift for Mother’s Day. Our delightful ‘new baby’ arrangements feature the charming beauty of the chrysanthemum, and make a fantastic gift for a new mother. Explore our range and you’ll find a number of chrysanthemum arrangements in the vibrant hues of snowy white, lime green, and sunshine yellow.
Historically, they were first grown in China, and then were introduced to the Japanese who loved them so much they adopted the chrysanthemum as the crest of the Emperor. In the 17th century, it was then introduced to the Western world, and exploded with popularity. In today’s world, the chrysanthemum is the most widely grown pot plant across the country. It is common to see chrysanthemums used as lapel flowers, or as corsages.
