November | Chrysanthemum
Daisy-like with a typically yellow center and a decorative pompom, chrysanthemums symbolize longevity, fidelity, joy, and optimism. They're the November birth flower and traditionally the celebratory 13th wedding anniversary flower.
Since the flower blooms in the fall, the chrysanthemum signifies joy and beauty despite the oncoming winter. Although beautiful, chrysanthemums hold various meanings across different time periods and cultures. For instance, Victorians used chrysanthemums to show friendship and well-wishing while some Asian cultures offer this botanical with the wishes of a long and happy life.
Literary Inspiration: "The breezes taste of apple peel. The air is full of smells to feel- ripe fruit, old footballs, burning brush, new books, erasers, chalk, and such. The bee, his hive, well-honeyed hum, and mother cuts Chrysanthemums." | John Updike
Chrysanthemums are the official flower of the city of Chicago.
In Japan, there's even a "Festival of Happiness" to celebrate this flower each year.
In the United States, chrysanthemum is the largest commercially produced flower and is known as the “Queen of Fall Flowers.”
