I personally love fall colors, especially the beautiful colors of chrysanthemums. If you truly enjoy looking at the colors of autumn, then get ready for the fall horticulture exhibition returning to Grand Rapids.

There's only one place to see this incredible exhibition and that would be at Meijer Gardens in Grand Rapids.

According to mlive.com:

The ‘Chrysanthemums & More” exhibition is slated to open on Friday, Sept. 16 at Frederik Meijer Gardens and Sculpture Park, 1000 East Beltline Ave. NE. The exhibition will continue through Sunday, Oct. 30.

If you're a fan of chrysanthemums, then you will enjoy looking at thousands of blossoms stretching across more than 150 acres at Frederick Meijer Gardens and Sculpture Park

Did you know there's a special meaning behind the name chrysanthemum? Here's more from funnyhowflowersdothat.co.uk:

The chrysanthemum also has a powerful meaning in Greek superstition. There, the flower is seen as a protector against evil spirits. This is the reason you'll often see the flowers in graveyards — but don't be persuaded into picking them. Tradition dictates that graveside chrysanthemums give bring bad luck, headaches and even nightmares.

Now that we've given you some information about chrysanthemums, it's time to start making plans to drive to Grand Rapids to see some very beautiful colors at Meijer Gardens on Friday, September 16.

Mlive.com also tells us:

Event-goers can expect an abundance of plantings surrounding a colorful autumn theme in the Grand Entry Garden, Welcome Center, and Ginsberg and Bissell Corridors.

My wife and I spend a lot of time planting flowers throughout the spring and summer months. We enjoy fall colors and especially enjoy planting chrysanthemums in the spring or fall. It's best to avoid the summer heat when it comes to these beautiful flowers.
