Chrysanthemum Vienna Copper

A fashionable flower to give your bouquet just that little more edge. Isn't that what every florist is looking for? Why not look for that edge in the copper-colored Autumn queen; the Chrysanthemum Vienna Copper? A brown-cream disbudded and single-headed cut flower. But let's skip the formalities and go find out what this fluffy flower is all about and throw some inspirational images at you in the meantime.

Chrysanthemum Vienna Copper

Vienna Copper distinguishes itself by its unique color, large format, and incurved ribbons. Although the copper-colored Vienna chrysanthemum is a fairly new variety in the fluffy chrysanthemums, the genes of the plant are much older. This variety is available from August to mid-November and has only been around for a few years.

Quite the Character

The Vienna Copper chrysant is characterized by its enormous bulb. The shape of the petals that grow around the bulb makes it a specialty product that is ideally suited for the higher segment flower shops.

These following images of floral designers worldwide spread the love and interest in this fussy flower that is about to splash off your screen. But first, a thought by Floret Flower Farm on chrysanthemums and how she believes that the chrysanthemum is seriously rediscovered:

Where To Buy the Chrysanthemum Vienna Copper?

What its grower, Arcadia Chrysanten, has to say about the popular Chrysanthemum Vienna Copper. Ronald from Arcadia in conversation with Florapodium:

"This Chrysanthemum is so special because of the curled leaves that form the sphere. It is a chrysanthemum in its original shape, a chrysanthemum like a chrysanthemum should be. The color of the 'Copper' is really a very nice warm autumn color. That makes the product extra suitable for this season."
