Posted March 13, 2018 09:22:18I’m currently in the middle of a growing love affair with my own flower.
I recently picked up a large, white and pretty-looking flower named “Flower Boy” by Banyan Gardens.
It’s a lovely, springy, blue-tinged, white flower that’s also quite popular in China.
Flower boy has a very distinctive look and looks like a giant flower that could easily be mistaken for a tulip, but I love that it’s called a “flower boy”.
I picked the flower up for a few weeks to try and figure out if it was actually a flower or not, and I’m not the only one.
The flower is also known as a “chrysanthemum flower” because of the color of its petals.
As an Asian-American woman, I was very surprised to find out that the flower I was seeing was actually “Chrysantheum” because it’s the name of the ancient Greek plant of the same name.
And what is “Chryse” exactly?
Chryssa means “crowned”, and it’s a Greek goddess of childbirth and love.
According to Wikipedia, it was also the name for a type of plant that had been cultivated for thousands of years.
Now, you may be thinking that “Chysse” is a Sanskrit word meaning “gold”, and that “chryse”, in turn, means “gold” or “golden”.
But that’s not the case.
“Chryst” is an ancient Greek word for “gold”.
“Dorothea” is another ancient Greek name for “heart”.
It also means “heart”, and the word “chysse”, on its own, means both “gold and gold”.
So, if you’re interested in finding out more about what Chryssas are, you can visit Banyans website and read more about their flower.
