        @thriftybri Definitely a chrysanthemum :blue thumb: this one I do know @ARMANDII :heehee:

        My uncle used to grow the large ones when he was a live both in the front and back garden and he used to sell the heads in bunch's for such as graves etc

        As the flower head used to open up he used to bag the heads with brown paper bags, so the flowers developed clean and large...nice colour :love30:
