Chrysanthemum Carinatum Mixed Color – Flower Seeds
Each Chrysanthemum the flower head is actually a cluster of many flowers, composed of a central group of short disk flowers surrounded by rings of longer ray flowers. Chrysanthemums are classified into nine categories according to the type and arrangement of disk and ray flowers – Incurved, Reflexed, Intermediate, Late Flowering Anemones, Singles, Pompons, Sprays, Spiders/Spoons/Quills, Charms, and the Cascades. For example, the ‘reflexed’ Chrysanthemum consists of ray flowers that curve downward into an umbrella shape; the ‘quill’ has tubular ray flowers that radiate from the center of the head.
