In the month of November when you are deciding on the Best Los Angeles Flowers to send, a wonderful choice would be to go with the chrysanthemum.  Chrysanthemum, also known as "mums", is the birth flower of November, which will make it symbolic in itself.  The flower will have a delightful meaning to your recipient.  It means cheerfulness, rest, loveliness, optimism, abundance, wealth. It is said that red chrysanthemums means love, yellow means slighted love and white means truth.

The chrysanthemum is said to be a flowering perennial plant of the genus Chrysanthemum in the daisy family.  Chrysanthemums were cultivated in China as a flowering herb as far back as the 15th century BCE. An ancient Chinese city was named Chu-Hsien, meaning “chrysanthemum city”.  The flower was introduced into Japan probably in the 8th century CE, and the Emperor adopted the flower as his official seal.  The flower was brought to the Western World in the 17th century. It was named by Carolus Linnaeus from the Greek prefix chrys-, which means golden (the color of the original flowers), and -anthemon, meaning flower.

The flower also comes in various forms, including daisy-like, decorative, pompons or buttons.  Chrysanthemum flowers are boiled to make a sweet drink in some parts of Asia. The resulting beverage is known simply as “chrysanthemum tea”.  Chrysanthemum tea has many medicinal uses, including an aid in recovery from influenza.  This is an amazing flower and you can't go wrong with getting mums for any of your special events and occasions.
