Chrysanthemums (Perennial flowering plants)
Chrysanthemums (Perennial flowering plants)
Chrysanthemums, often called 'mums', are a genus (Chrysanthemum) of about 30 species of perennial flowering plants in the family Asteraceae, native to Asia and northeastern Europe. The species of Chrysanthemum are herbaceous perennial plants growing to 50–150 cm tall, with deeply lobed leaves and large flowerheads, white, yellow or pink in the wild species. Modern chrysanthemums are much more showy than their wild relatives. The flowers occur in various forms, and can be daisy-like, decorative, pompons or buttons. This genus contains many hybrids and thousands of cultivars developed for horticultural purposes. In addition to the traditional yellow, other colors are available, such as white, purple, and red. I Chrysanthemum sono un genere delle Asteraceae, il nome in greco vuol dire fiore d'oro; comprende piante erbacee perenni o annuali, originarie di molte parti del Mondo, dall'Europa alla Cina, alte da 20 cm a oltre 1 m, con numerosi ibridi e varieta coltivati come piante ornamentali in floricoltura e nel giardinaggio. Le varieta nane di Chrysanthemum chiamate in floricoltura Crisantemi coreani derivati da C.coreanum e C. rubellum hanno numerosi piccoli fiori coloratissimi per vasi fioriti o aiuole In Italia il crisantemo fiorisce alla fine di ottobre e proprio per la concomitanza della fioritura con la celebrazione dei defunti si e soliti attribuire a questo fiore un significato funesto. In realta pero il nome, che deriva dal greco, letteralmente significa fiore d'oro ed e quindi stato associato dalla tradizione a valenze assolutamente positive. In Corea e in Cina e il fiore dei festeggiamenti (matrimoni, compleanni, ecc.); in Giappone e il fiore nazionale e la sua bellezza viene celebrata ogni anno dall'Imperatore che, in occasione della fioritura, apre al pubblico i giardini della Reggia, presentando le piu recenti varieta a tutti gli invitati. Il significato che il Mondo Orientale e solito attribuire al crisantemo e dunque quello di vita e felicita. Il Crisantemo, che per noi e il fiore dei morti, in Cina, Giappone e nei paesi anglosassoni e simbolo di gioia, vitalita e pace. In Cina e Giappone viene regalato alle Spose, in Inghilterra in occasione delle nascite. Il crisantemo rosso significa "ti amo", bianco significa "verita". Malgrado l'assurda diffidenza che esiste, almeno nel nostro Paese, nei confronti dei crisantemi, il linguaggio floreale non trascura di attribuire a questi fiori un romantico significato: "non farti attendere". In Oriente i crisantemi hanno il significato simbolico di "fiori della vita".
The Blood of Hyakinthos
The Blood of Hyakinthos
Hyacinthus orientalis (Common Hyacinth, Garden Hyacinth or Dutch Hyacinth), is a perennial flowering plant of the genus Hyacinthus, native to southwestern Asia, in southern and central Turkey, northwestern Syria, Lebanon and northern Israel. It was introduced to Europe in the 16th century. In Greek mythology, Hyakinthos was a young man admired by Apollo and Zephyr, but killed by a discus in a jealous fight between the two gods. The flower was allegedly named after him when it sprang from his blood. Nevertheless, the ancient plant Hyakinthos is nowadays known as Gladiolus segetum. "I sometimes think that never blows so red The Rose as where some buried Caesar bled; That every Hyacinth the Garden wears Dropt in her Lap from some once lovely Head." Omar Khayyam
