Showcasing its horticulture student projects, Smith College in Massachusettes will host its annual chrysanthemum exhibit this November.

Held at the Lyman Conservatory, the show will feature chrysanthemums laboriously trained to form waterfalls of flowers cascading down the walls of the conservatory and numerous plants grown with a single stem to produce one large flower.

The event will also feature a harp recital, a chrysanthemum themed poetry reading by Chinese literature students and a lecture discussing how to create personal connections with landscape design. Chrysanthemum tea will be served during the show.

Held since the early 1900s, the event is a college and community tradition and showcases Smith students' experiments with hybridizing the flowers.

The event will be held from November 6 to November 21 and is open to the public, free of charge.

Chrysanthemum flower heads are actually a cluster of many flowers, according to The Flower Expert. Chrysanthemum flower meanings vary according to color, a red flower symbolizes love, a white represents truth and a yellow chrysanthemum conveys slighted love.
