Mums the word today, as the chrysanthemum is the floral most associated with October. In Eastern philosophy the mum has long been favored, as they are said to convey so much strong yang energy that they can instantly attract fortune and luck. They also symbolize a long life of ease and durability, so anything that you want to last — be it love, success, prosperity or harmony — can be auspiciously augmented by displaying these flowers. When positioned in the ‘Fame’ area of the home or office in October, yellow chrysanthemum will bring honor, opportunity, recognition and rewards.
