Florets - Floral Quote by Alethea Harampolis and Jill Rizzo of Studio Choo




Chrysanthemum - pompom, quill, spider, and spoon are just a few of the fascinating forms of the chrysanthemum flower. A symbol of longevity and happiness, this regal cousin of the dahlia was the emblem imperial Japan for hundreds of years. The flowers' petal-packed heads come in various sizes and shapes, and their sturdy stems allow the sometimes heavy-headed mums to stand tall on their own.
