THE ORIGIN

In Asia, the Chrysants have been wildly popular for centuries. The flower is native to China and Japan, where they fell in love with it immediately. Around 1700 the Chrysanthemum left the Orient to make themselves also seen in Europe.

This flower symbolizes health and happiness. The stylish Chrysanthemum gives you both pleasure and a good dose of luck.

COLOURS AND SHAPES

Today, looking around in the market we would almost forget that the Chrysanthemum is originally yellow. The flower is in fact available in an unprecedented wide colour palette. Whoever chooses colour can enrich his house with Chrysants in warm golden yellow, bronze red or deep orange hues. Or one just goes for subtle and quiet with Chrysants in shades of white, pink or purple. Furthermore, this beautiful flower also offers another broad choice of various types: there are disbudded, spray and santini Chrysants.

• Provide a clean vase of fresh water.
• Remove the leaves so they do not hang in the water.
• Add cut flower food.
• Change the water every five days and fill the vase regularly.
• Do not put the flowers in full sunlight or in a draft.
