In the botanical world, chrysanthemum flowers come in many different varieties as evidenced in their petals. This closeup shows both the bloom and the stem isolated against a plain background. Devoid of its original color and rendered in sepia tones, the shape and pattern of the plant stand out in this photograph shot with a macro lens.
Chrysanthemums come in all sorts of colors, shapes and sizes and breeders have produced many variations beyond the classic daisy-shaped flower. First cultivated in China, the chrysanthemum petals and young shoots were used as a culinary herb, in salads and brewed into teas.
