November Birth Flower: Chrysanthemum

The symbols of the chrysanthemum are optimism and joy.

Chrysanthemums as they are more commonly known are one of the most widely cultivated flowers in the world, and the birthday flower for those born in the month of November. A native to Asia and northeastern Europe, their name comes from the Greek words “chrysos,” meaning gold, and “anthemon,” which means flower.  They are a member of the daisy family, which also includes asters, zinnias and coneflowers. Many varieties of chrysanthemums bloom during the fall months; however, you can also find chrysanthemums blooming just about any time of the year.
What makes these plants so interesting is the diversity of flower variations you can find. From puffy poms to the spindly spider and quill flowers, there is a chrysanthemum for every taste. Plants feature dark green leaves and relatively large flowers, with the most common colors being yellow, pink, red or white. Contrary to their appearance, the chrysanthemum’s pom blooms are not just one single large flower, but rather a grouping of many tiny flowers.

Chrysanthemums in History
As early as the 15th century BC, the chrysanthemum was cultivated as a flowering herb in China. It is also one of the four plants known in Chinese culture as “The Four Gentlemen,” which were depicted in much of the art beginning during the Song Dynasty, 960 to 1279. The chrysanthemum flower was used to represent autumn in this style of paintings.
Colors and Symbolism
The chrysanthemum is one of the most popular flowers, outshined only by the rose. It is a traditional flower to give on Mother’s Day. It symbolizes the qualities of optimism and joy.
Red flowers express true love, while yellow refers to a wounded heart, and white the virtue of honesty.

In China chrysanthemums are considered a symbol of stateliness and is a popular topic of many of the country’s poets.
Chrysanthemums are the flower of choice to give on a 13th wedding anniversary.

Titania did you know this story about the Chrysanthemum :
Long time ago when the :iconmoonplz: was a very little girl but already in love with the :iconsun--plz: , she was wondering how long their love would last, so the sun picked a :icondaisyflowerplz: which had grew under his beams to count how much times they will love each others on the numbers of petals... but after he did, she was sad thining that was not enough . 
So the crafty moon picked some more daisies, mixed them together, cut their petals in parts with the point of her crescent to makes still more and more ones , to finnaly create a flower, :iconchrysanthemumflowerplz: , with so many petals that shows for how long milleniums the moon /sun couple last and will still last :)
