What's your Chrysantemum
pick for the week?
New week, new chrysanthemums that are ready to invade your bouquets and indoor spaces with their magical hues of brilliantly bold colors. What is there not to love about mums? They’re what we like to call perfection in a flower. If your year has not yet bloomed maybe it's because you're in need of a handful of colorful chrysanths which we have completely available at Sky Flowers.
Did you know we have a colorful range of more than 50 chrysanthemums? What's most impressive about them is their instantaneous ability to surprise anyone that’s gifted a bouquet containing these flowers because of their mesmerizing and never-ending beauty.
The special meaning behind mums is actually very special and you’re about to know why you need these flowers in your life and a little more about their amazing history. The first chrysanthemums were cultivated in China centuries ago. It has appeared in ancient Chinese writings as early as 15th century BC and was used as an herbal remedy. Its boiled roots were believed to provide headache relief, and the sprouts and petals were eaten in salads. The Chinese city of Chu-Hsien was named after the chrysanthemum and literally means “Chrysanthemum City.”
From China, the chrysanthemum made its way over to Japan by Buddhist monks in AD 400. Soon after its introduction, the Japanese were so enamored by this beautiful flower that it was soon adopted as the emperor’s crest and official seal. “Kiku” is the Japanese name for chrysanthemum and every year there is a National Chrysanthemum Day which is also referred to as the Festival of Happiness.
Not only is this very interesting about mums, but their symbolism as well. In the United States, chrysanthemums symbolize friendship, happiness, and well-being. They are often tied to the arrival of autumn since they are one of the most popular fall flowers.
Now that you have the general mum panorama, how about choosing your favorites for this week or the coming month which is also known as the loveliest month of the year? These are the top mum picks of the week for you to choose from:
