More than 5,000 chrysanthemum plants, among many others, were displayed at the Chrysanthemum and Autumn Flowers Show in Rawalpindi, Pakistan.

The show, which took place during November 25-28, attracted residents from the twin cities with varied flower arrangements and contests featuring dry and fresh flowers and cut flower arrangement categories, reports Pakistan's Daily Times.

Capital Development Authority chairman Imtiaz Inayat Elahi said that "the importance of [the] flower cannot be described in words. Rather, it can well be felt by the nature-lovers...the flowers increase interest in nature among those who remain estranged from [the] natural environment," according to the news source.

Chrysanthemums are available the world-over as a popular addition to any autumn flower bouquet, according to, which heralds the arrival of these blooms as a "sure sign of fall." Chrysanthemums, or "mums," as they're commonly called, come in a variety of reds, oranges, bronzes, and yellows, as well as softer spring shades of pinks, purples and whites, according to the website. For mums that will last well through the autumn, the source recommends selecting plants with unopened flower bulbs.
