Garden Plants Fall Chrysanthemums

Chrysanthemum (synonym: Dendranthema) is a genus of the family Asteraceae (Asteraceae of Compositae). The name originates from the Greek: ‘chrys-‘ meaning gold and ‘-anthemon’ meaning flower. The chrysanthemum is being used more regularly for general decorative applications because of the good shelf life and diversity of colors and types of plants that are available.

In China the chrysanthemum is a symbol for happiness. Also the chrysanthemum is the national symbol of Japan. The imperial seal is a stylized chrysanthemum, and the country has an order that is named after the flower, the Order of the Chrysanthemum.

The chrysanthemum is available in several pot sizes from July till November; 19 cm (most common size), 21 cm, 26 cm, and 32 cm pots. Most plants are produced in 1 color per pot, but we also produce mixed pots in trio (3 colors) in 19 cm pot, quatro (4 colors) in 21 cm pot, quinto (5 colors) in 26 cm pot, and sesto (6 colors) in 32 cm pot.

The plants get out of the greenhouse between July and the half of August, and from August on the plants are grown outside.
