Colours and shapes

The name comes from the Greek words chrys (gold) and anthemom (flower). The original colour of the Chrysanthemum was gold, but nowadays it comes in many different colours. Consumers can choose from warm yellow gold, bronze and orange to greens. But also subtle whites, pinks and purples are available. The Chrysanthemum blooms are divided into 10 different blooms. From pompon, the form is full double, to spider form where the disk florets are concealed.

Chrysanthemum Care Tips for Growers

For growers aiming to optimize the growth and aesthetic appeal of Chrysanthemums, integrating effective care products such as Chrysal OVB and Chrysal Viva into your cultivation practices can yield significant benefits. Chrysal Viva is particularly advantageous for both cut flowers and potted plants. Chrysal Viva is user-friendly and is not just a growth application for Phalaenopsis; as a post-harvest application, it enhances the ornamental value of the leaves and flowers in Rosa, Anthuriums, and Chrysanthemums. This product helps maintain the beauty of flowers and plants longer, ensures more intense and vibrant colours and prevents leaf yellowing. Incorporating these Chrysal products into your routine ensures that your Chrysanthemums are vibrant, healthy, and visually stunning.
