chrysanna is a name derived from chrysanthemum meaning golden from it's Latin roots. Related to the name Suzanna and Christina, Chrysanna is rare and commonly misspelled. Modern chrysanthemums are much more showy than their wild relatives. The flowers occur in various forms, and can be daisy-like, decorative, pompoms or buttons. This genus contains many hybrids and thousands of cultivars developed for horticultural purposes. In addition to the traditional yellow, other colors are available, such as white, purple, and red.
