Features Chrysanthemum sinense (I)
The name chrysanthemum is derived from the Greek words, chrysos (gold) and anthemon (flower). Chrysanthemums were first cultivated in China as a flowering herb as far back as the 15th century BC.
Based on a botanical illustration from the 1890s by Edward Step, which we have carefully restored and enhanced.
