Florets - Floral Quote - # 121 - by Malin Hidesäter



" Ah, lovely, colourful and sweet-scented chrysanthemums! Come the autumn, there are so many varieties to choose between, and they last for ages. A 3,000-year-old legend tells how the emperor of China ordered a few of his men to seek out a magic herb that would bring eternal youth. The men returned with some twigs of chrysanthemum. Eternal youth or not, chrysanthemums is now second only to the rose in terms of numbers sold."
