Crysanthemums were first cultivated in China as a flowering herb as far back as the 15th century BC.

The flower may have been brought to Japan in the eighth century AD, and the Emperor adopted the flower as his official seal.

The flower entered American horticulture in 1798 when Colonel John Stevens imported a cultivated variety known as Dark Purple from England.
