Flower spotlight: chrysanthemums

Chrysanthemums, commonly called mums, are the queen of fall flowers, and they come in many varieties and colors.

Mums can be traced back to the 15th century B.C. in China. They made their way to Japan in the 8th century A.D., where the emperor adopted a single chrysanthemum as the crest and official seal. It’s still a highly revered flower throughout Asia today.
