Welcome to 
the world of Fantasy Chrysanthemums

Dennis Maher (Australia) with drawings

In this article Dennis explains in detail the main attributes of chrysanthemums collectively known as Fantasies. He explores the various national standards that currently exist, and illustrates his points with numerous examples in both picture and diagram form. Finally, he gives useful pointers for those of us who may be required to judge flowers in this section. 

This webpage is structured to follow as closely as possible the format of Dennis' original article, published in the December 2004 edition of  'Chrysanthemums Down Under', the official newsletter of the Australian Chrysanthemum Council.
