The name "chrysanthemum" is derived from the Greek words chrysos (gold) and anthemon (flower).

Chrysanthemums were first cultivated in China as a flowering herb as far back as the 15th century BC.

Chrysanthemums entered American horticulture in 1798 when Colonel John Stevens imported a cultivated variety known as 'Dark Purple' from England. The introduction was part of an effort to grow attractions within Elysian Fields in Hoboken, New Jersey.

Chrysanthemums are so loved in Japan they have their own day – September 9th.
