    You’re right ... that’s a chrysanthemum. Some of them, particularly the hardy ones, do develop quite woody stems.
    I love that bronze colour. 😊

    Thanks , I was given some for putting in a vase , but it doesn’t have that distinctive smell , so I wondered if it was a shrub ?

    I think so too. I love those smaller flowered types 😊

    A good autumn colour.

    When I married Wonky’s father it was in December and the the church was decorated with gold and bronze spray chrysanthemums and the men had gold ones for buttonholes.

    Don't appreciate the pink flowers during autumn, our patio mums are primrose, yellow, bronze and red, a lovely mix this time of year, when the rain doesn't destroy them as it has this year.

    I love the cat's pee smell of chrysanthemums - many don't. Apparently sauvignon blanc has similar qualities. Ive never made the connection, but am partial to both😊
    In London. Keen but lazy.
