On looking at your flower kelly - I think I would probably be right in saying - that what you have is one of the Spider Chrysanthemum varieties known as " Anastasia " - which are extremely popular due to the fact that their flowers can measure from anything between 3 - 6 inches across :)

Wow, it's a giant chrysanthemum. I think it's the first time when I see such an enormous flower. I've never been a big fan of chrysanthemums, but I must say that this one looks really nice:)

We call that a chrysanthemum here, too. I usually see them included in flower arrangements for funerals. :O

It's the same here, in Poland. We consider chrysanthemums cemetery flowers. This is the main reason why I don't like them too much and I definitely wouldn't want to grow them in my garden. It would be too spooky:unsure:

I remember what you said about the poms! LOL. The chrysanthemum is definitely the one I see during funerals. They are usually white and big. They complement the anthuriums.

In my country, anthuriums are often used to make funeral wreaths. As for chrysanthemums, people plant them on graves. I think that yellow and white ones are the most popular here;)

Its the same where I live too - however although white chrysanthemums and white arum lilies are always the predominant flowers in funeral arrangements - white chrysanthemums here are generally associated with the " Day of the Dead " - and as that day - is the one and only time of year that the shops actually do have cut flowers or plants for sale and it would under normal circumstances be quite exciting to be able to buy cut flowers or plants - it is not - unless of course you actually want to have some white chrysanthemums that are associated with the " Day of the Dead " sitting in your living room :(
