Vintage botanical art by Edward Step featuring Chrysanthemum carinatum var. burridgeanum native to Morocco.
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.
This is a fine art print of a lithograph made in the late 1800s by Step.
