SPIDER CHRYSANTHEMUMS

A spider chrysanthemum has very distinct flowers, which sets it apart from the rest. Spider chrysanthemums’ flowers have many rows of petals which are very long and narrow, and which completely cover the centre of the flower. The inner petals are shorter and go up, curving themselves around the centre and concealing it. The rest of the petals stick out like a spider's legs and give this flower its very particular shape. Some varieties of spider chrysanthemum are “Yellow Rayonnante,” “Pietro” and “Tokio” and “Magdalena.” This particular green one I am showcasing below, is called “Shamrock”.
