The chrysanthemum, which is closely related to the daisy is often referred to by cultivators and gardeners as “mums”. The term chrysanthemum is adapted from the Greek words chrysos which means gold (its original color) and anthos meaning flower. The oldest variety of chrysanthemum is the Chinese chrysanthemum, which was a daisy-like plant in China. It was cultivated for nearly 2,500 years before it made its way to Europe.
