Anemone Chrysanthemums are another of the thirteen types of mums recognized by the National Chrysanthemum Society. They are named for the sea anemones. Anemone mums have flat rows of petals with a raised center of small florets. I’ve photographed two varieties of anemone mums – hope you enjoy them.
The Mancetta Sunset Anemone Mums have wonderful shades of orange and yellow in them. They are beautiful fall flowers.
The Purple Light Anemone Chrysanthemums really show the characteristic raised center florets of the anemone mums. It extends way above the rows of petals.
