The name “chrysanthemum” is derived from the Greek words chrysos (gold) and anthemon (flower). They are divided into two groups, garden hardy (perennials) and exhibition chrysanthemums. ‘Mums’, as they are commonly known, start blooming in the fall.
These are the exhibition chrysanthemums that I photographed today.
Experience a fascinating fabrication of flowers at the garden’s annual fall chrysanthemum show. Bold mums combine with vibrant colors, rich fabrics, diverse textures and other exotic design elements- representative of the storied Japanese culture.
These were the garden mums on display.
