I forgot the chrysanthemum reference. Chrysanthemums are "the flower of the dead" over here and in some other European countries, people put them on the grave of their loved ones. Here is the story (MLW advertizing!), at least about France. The only ones you can bring to someone as a gift are either the ones that really look like daisies (they're all "anthemums" after all) or the "Tokyo" variety. NEVER EVER any incurve varieties, they're for graves only!
