When fall arrives and the temperatures drop, it’s easy to see why blooms as showy and colorful as chrysanthemums are in high demand. These popular fall flowers are the darling of the fall season, not just because they bloom this time of year, but also because they represent fall colors in the most magnificent shapes and styles.

Chrysanthemums and Symbolism
Chrysanthemums have been grown for centuries. Originating in East Asia, these blooms are still highly prized today. Mums have historically been reserved for royalty in parts of Asia and were even added to the imperial seal in Japan. In these countries today, mums still embody the concepts of rejuvenation and long life. In western countries, mums symbolize joy, happiness and optimism, particularly when given as a gift. In America, Chrysanthemums also showcase the fall season with their colors and scents. Clearly, mums are highly prized blooms.
