Kiku Chrysanthemums



Kiku Chrysanthemum

Chrysanthemum ‘NYBG Selection White’

(kris-AN-the-mum)


This is another picture from the Fall Flowers of Japan show at the NYBG. The flowers left a deep impression on me. They were very proud flowers and each seemed to be reveling in their beauty. To give an idea of the scale each flower was 5 to 6 inches across. While most people don’t like the smell of mums I found the aroma to be heady and refreshing. It brought some childhood memories of pinching the large wholesale crop of mums my parents used to grow.


Another rainy day out there today. The large bulb order is here and it is going to take a lot of digging to install them. Perhaps my eyes were bigger than my shovel. It is really not going to be a problem finding space and getting them in but it was more than I expected (the packages looked so small in the catalog).
