Meaning and Symbolic Chrysanthemum


Flower is symbol for every moment. No matter what we are celebrating, a new baby, a birthday or anniversary, whether we want to say thank you, congratulations, get well or we always thinking of flower.
Chrysanthemums
Symbols of wealth, fidelity and truth, chrysanthemums have been grown in Chinese gardens for more than 2,000 years. A gift of chrysanthemum flowers conveys your pure intentions, whether to a spouse, friend or business associate.

THE MEANING & SYMBOLISM OF chrysanthemum
With a history that dates back to 15th century B.C., chrysanthemum mythology is filled with a multitude of stories and symbolism. Named from the Greek prefix “chrys-“ meaning golden (its original color) and “-anthemion,” meaning flower, years of artful cultivation have produced a full range of colors, from white to purple to red
Daisy-like with a typically yellow center and a decorative pompon, chrysanthemums symbolize optimism and joy. They’re the November birth flower, the 13th wedding anniversary flower and the official flower of the city of Chicago.
In Japan, there’s even a “Festival of Happiness” to celebrate this flower each year.
A symbol of the sun, the Japanese consider the orderly unfolding of the chrysanthemum’s petals to represent perfection, and Confucius once suggested they be used as an object of meditation. It’s said that a single petal of this celebrated flower placed at the bottom of a wine glass will encourage a long and healthy life.
