Chrysanthemum Festival is an extraordinary blend of horticulture and artistry, preserving an ancient Asian art form while showcasing innovative plant-growing techniques.
Chrysanthemum Festival On View October 26–November 24
Discover more than 20,000 blooming chrysanthemums nurtured and trained by our horticulture experts, some for more than a year, to resemble clouds, torches, spirals, fans, 13-foot arches, and more.
See our most audacious plant of all—the largest Thousand Bloom Mum in North America—which showcases more than 1,100 perfect yellow blooms for the first time. A Longwood-grown Thousand Bloom Mum will also debut October 26 at the US Botanic Garden in Washington, DC.
