It represents the 9th lunar month and it brings joy and happiness.
In Chinese art and paintings, chrysanthemums are combined with other flowers and auspicious symbols:
a) Pine, bamboo, crane and/or deer - for a healthy long life
b) plum blossoms - for a good life after retirement
c) grasshopper on top of flower - for a long and stable ministerial positon of high ranking

Potted chrysanthemums are used to decorate our homes during the Chinese New Year to attract good fortune. We also believe that displaying fresh and blooming chrysanthemums in our homes and premises at other times of the year will bring us long-lasting love, engagement, commitment, success and good luck.
We drink chrysanthemum infused tea and chrysanthemum herbal beverages. In certain folk movies, I have seen people eating the flower petals.
