Almost everyone knows chrysanthemums. They are daisy-like plants that are strongly aromatic. They can grow up to 2 feet tall or, more.
Chrysanthemums were introduced to England in the late 18th cent., and today innumerable named horticultural types exist. Chrysanthemums rank with roses in commercial importance as cut flowers and pot and garden plants. The pyrethrum, feverfew, and daisy belong to the same genus. Pyrethrum is used as an insecticide and feverfew as an herbal remedy for migraine. Chrysanthemum is classified in the division Magnoliophyta, class Magnoliopsida, order Asterales, family Asteraceae.
