Here the chrysanthemum is supposed to give to the dead people. When we go to the tomb, usually we will bring the chrysanthemum. So it is a taboo to give it to anybody as a gift in my country.

That yellow flower in the picture reminded me of something. That was the flower that we used in our wedding. Our motiff was yellow so we used yellow flowers too. We wete supposed to use Yellow roses but it is too expensive. In here, there's no such belief as yours regarding that flower.

In our wedding, it is OK to use roses, lily etc. but never be chrysanthemum.

@youless We have no belief like that here so it's okay if we use that flower in a wedding.

@magallon Every country has its own culture. The difference makes the world much more interesting.

I honestly don't believe there is one for my area. I do know that I was reading about one in another country where you can't give out a certain number during a dinner date. I thought what a load of crock. But you can't help what people believe in right.

Here the number concerning about "4" is an unlucky number.

I am not sure if there is a taboo with regards to chrysanthemums. I love the flower and grow different colors in my garden. I have seen the white and the yellow being used as graveyard flowers.

I don't know where you come from. But I think the chrysanthemums are not taboo flowers in your country.
