Beginning this month, we will be doing a feature on the flower of each month! This month is the Chrysanthemum.
Because the Chrysanthemum blooms in November, it is known to represent Hope in dark times.
Chrysanthemums are originally from Asia and are known to be a noble flower. It often appears on Chinese ceramics as the flower of autumn. It became to be known as symbol for harvest, rest, and ease.
The rising sun on the Japanese flag also resembles a chrysanthemum.
In Victorian flower code, a white chrysanthemum stood for truth and a yellow chrysanthemum stood for a slighted love.
