Chrysanthemums were cultivated in China as a flowering herb as far back as the 15th century BC. An ancient Chinese city was named Ju-Xian, meaning "chrysanthemum city".
The flower was introduced into Japan probably in the 8th century AD, and the Emperor adopted the flower as his official seal. There is also a "Festival of Happiness" in Japan that celebrates the flower.
Bloom chrysanthemums are a much more showy variety than the regular Chrysanthemum varieties which are available all year round. These blooms are really at there best through the months of October and November, so florists like to make the most of using them while they are around!
Naturally, we work in tune with the seasons, which change as each week passes and the climate shifts. This may, from time to time, mean we have to create your bouquet using slightly different flowers from those pictured. We will of course make sure we work similar colours & scents into your design and keep it the same shape and style.
