I wanted to post this just to show you a different kind of chrysanthemum. I'm not really sure what the variety is called, to be honest, but it always brings to mind those noise makers - the kind that makes a noise when you blow into it and a paper tube uncoils and then coils back in. So, how about "noise maker" chrysanthemum? Okay, so that name's not going win any prizes but it is quite descriptive, don't you think? (^.~)
Within this variety there are additional variations of colour and petal width, length and number. As can be imagined, the blooms needs extra support and you can see the wire frame below the flower head. I expect these are quite challenging to grow. I have no interest in even trying...
