The Chrysanthemum flower symbolises fidelity, optimism, joy and long life. The name Chrysanthemum comes from the Greek word 'Chrys' meaning golden (the colour of the original flowers), and 'anthemon', meaning flower. The Chrysanthemum flowers bloom in various forms, and can be daisy-like, decorative, pompons or buttons. Chrysanthemum blooms come in a huge variety of shapes and sizes and in a wide range of colours. In addition to the traditional yellow, other popular colours are white, pink, green and red.
