Had to share this one too. Artist's license or were the mums really that big? Artist is Fannie Eliza Duvall. The title of the painting is "Chrysanthemum Garden in Southern California". It was painted in 1924

 

A postcard from 1910. Love the color but I wonder if this cultivar actually existed or was this just a nicely painted mum originating from the painter's imagination.

 

 

A lithograph from the mid-1800s. The orange bloom is a cultivar named General Slade and the pink one was named Venus.

 

Wouldn't it be nice if we could get one of the Bellingrath gardeners to give a talk at one of our National Conventions. I would love to find out how they do their cascades.
