Why not give mums to your mom who loves you and flowers ? We are now in the fall season which will be ending shortly and getting closer to the winter day by day. For those who love flowers , the best season is over. Rather than enjoying beautiful flowers, some people are now appreciating stunning views of fall foliage that is often more beautiful than flowers. However even in the late fall and early winter season, we have wonderful flowers blooming in the cool or cold season. The best one is chrysanthemums. They flower from late summer to early winter. Therefore some people call it “Latest Bloomer”. If you are lucky, you can find chrysanthemum flowering even in the snow during winter season.
As the name of this particular flower (chrysanthemum) is too long to remember and write down, they usually call it mum (or mums) that is an abbreviation of chrysanthemum and it sounds much easier to remember just like people say fridge instead of refrigerator.
Chrysanthemum is well known as a symbol of long and strong life. Even in the very severe temperature environment, they can bloom and keep their lives. As already mentioned in the top of this article, if you love your mother who loves you and flowers, it is a good idea to give her chrysanthemum gift on her birthday together with a birthday card expressing your appreciation from the bottom of your heart saying “Hope you live a long and strong life just like a chrysanthemum”.
If you are skillful in floral decorations, it is a good idea to make a flower basket of puppy by using mums rather than just giving the regular flower gift. This is a creative flower gift using mums which look like a baby dog. For those who have ample experiences in floral designs, it is not so difficult. However if you don’t want to spend time for making your own decoration, you can buy such gift online.
Getting back to flowering season of this particular flower, people can enjoy mums blooming during the season when most flowers’ best season is going to end or already finished. If you love gardening and flower arrangements, you can enjoy your hobby during fall and early winter season as well by making the best use of the nature of this flower.
Meanwhile, in addition to popular use of chrysanthemums such as popular ornamental use and culinary use such as garnish for salad (leaves of young mums), best kept secret is a natural source of insecticide. People may wonder why plants accepted for culinary use can be used for a source of insecticide. According to Wikipedia, the active components called pyrethrins are extracted from mums’ seed cases and used as insecticide which are far less toxic to mammals and birds than many insecticides. Pyrethrins attack the nervous systems of insects and inhibit female mosquitoes from biting. This is a very interesting use with which most of people are not familiar.
