The chrysanthemum is a plant that comes from China, although its popularity really comes from Japan, where this flower is considered divine.
Chrysanthemum focus is so important in Japan that it is also known as the “country of chrysanthemums”. The flower is found on Japan’s main emblems, like the flag. Contrary to what everyone thinks, the circle in the middle of the flag is not a rising sun but symbolises the centre of a chrysanthemum without its petals. It is also the symbol of the imperial family and appears on the passports of the citizens of this country.
However, Chrysanthemum focus has many other meanings. In Central America, chrysanthemums are given instead of roses to express love. In the western world, the chrysanthemum is also known as Saint Vincent’s flower and is offered to the deceased as a symbol of purification.
Regarding its characteristics, we can affirm that it is one of the flowers with the greatest number of varieties and colours. This type of flower has around 30 different species, which come from Asia and North-Eastern Europe. In the United States, they are known as mum flowers. They have an intense fragrance and an incredible variety of forms: from those that look like daisies to those that have the shape of anemones, tubes, pompoms, etc.
