What is the difference between a spray chrysanthemum, disbudded chrysanthemum and santini?
Chrysanthemums come in all sorts of wonderful shapes, colours and sizes. With spray chrysanthemums the flower size ranges from a diameter of 4 cm up to 12 cm, and there are multiple flowers on a stem.
With santini, unlike the spray chrysanthemum, the flower diameter never exceeds 4 cm. There are at least eight flowering blooms on the top 5 cm of the stem. The santini is therefore very suitable for use in medium-sized and small bouquets.
A disbudded chrysanthemum only has one flowering stem, and clearly differs from other members of the species in that regard. However, the flower size is also considerably bigger. The flowers have a diameter of at least 7 cm, and can grow to be 25 cm!
