Mums make great accent flowers and feature flowers, too. With all the variety of shapes, colors, and textures mums come in, the types of arrangement you can make with them are endless. See how we used them in Harvest Basket Bouquet and Elegant Harvest Setting.

Symbolism of Mums
The name, chrysanthemum, in the Greek language, literally means “Gold Flower.” In America, the traditional view of mums is a flower that provides joy and optimism. With the leafy or woody smell of many types of mums, naturally, the plant also symbolizes fall to most Americans. Originally grown in areas of China, the Chrysanthemum was so revered that the plant was only available to members of the royal family. In other areas of East Asia, mums symbolize rejuvenation and a long life. Clearly, mums are highly prized blooms.
Show someone special how revered they are to you when you send mums with so much meaning attached. The joy and beauty they’ll bring into your loved one’s world is beyond compare and will be an excellent welcome to the fall months.
