Chrysanthemum

Picture taken at the Baha’i Temple – New Delhi – the structure itself is beautiful, and the what seemed as millions of chrysanthemum flowers in full bloom was just breathtaking.

Common name: Chrysanthemum, Chandramukhi.

Irregular Incurve: These are the giants of the chrysanthemum world. Chrysanthemums have dark green, deeply lobed and aromatic leaves with soft grey undersides.

They come in a wide variety of flower shapes, sizes and colors, from dark burgundy, bronzes and oranges, to lavenders, light pastel pinks, and whites. Yellow or white chrysanthemum flowers are boiled to make a sweet drink in some parts of Asia. The resulting beverage is known simply as “chrysanthemum tea” .

Botanical name: Dendranthema X grandiflorum    Family: Asteraceae (Sunflower family)

Information – Wikipedia and Flowers of India.
