What colour chrysanthemums are there?
Chrysanthemums are versatile in type, flower size and colour. The colours vary from white, yellow, green, purple, red, orange, cream, pink and bronze to many bi-coloured varieties. Look at the page Range
for a complete overview.
What is the difference between a spray chrysanthemum, disbudded chrysanthemum and a santini?
are the most well known type. This is the original chrysanthemum which used to be available mostly in yellow or red tints. After 50 years of growing and breeding chrysanthemums, the spray chrysanthemum is now available in many beautiful shapes, colours and sizes. The size of the flowers can vary from 4cm diameter to 12cm. A santini flower
is never larger than 4cm in diameter and in the top 5cm of the stem there are a minimum of 8 flowers. That is why the santini is perferct to use in middle sized and small bouquets. A disbudded
chrysanthemum has only one flower per stem. The size of the flower is significantly larger than those of a spray chrysanthemum. They can grow to 25cm in size!

How long has the chrysanthemum already been in existence?
The chrysanthemum has a long and rich history. From an honoured plant in China, via a royal symbol in Japan, the chrysanthemum has developed into the beautiful representation we now know. For a number of fun facts look on the page History
How can my customers enjoy chrysanthemums for a long time?
Chrysanthemums like to be in a relatively cool position and are not keen on direct sunlight or draughts. Remove dying or damaged leaves and take a piece off the stem every 4 to 5 days to guarantee good water intake. With a bouquet of chrysanthemums you are best to advise them to unpack the flowers immediately at home and place them in a vase with clean, lukewarm water with plant food. Before putting them in a vase, remove the lower leaves and cut a slanted piece from the stem, so that it doesn't rest flat on the bottom of the vase.
