I have a Chrysanthemum morifolium that is also called " Ju-hua" but not sure if it should be distinguished separately?

This is a specific medicinal/edible variety of C. morifolium, also Autumn Chrysanthemum or Huangshan gongju.

Should the name "Ju-hua" be added to C. morifolium or should it be separate?

Thank you for your input.

Not sure what you mean by this: "Should the name "Ju-hua" be added to C. morifolium or should it be separate?"

It's not Latin, so it can't be part of the botanical name. If it's a cultivar, it should have a separate entry. Do you suppose it's the same as this one?

Thank you, Zuzu.

I don't think it's a cultivar, but not sure. I purchased the plant as what I though was a species of Chrysanthemum from China. But, now I'm just confused. I realize that when buying plants, the info given isn't always correct. I'll take a look into 'Juhuanao' further, since this is the first I've seen of it.

I'm wondering about the possibility of looking at it as a cultivar?? Shrug!

During my search about this plant, I also found some info about it having the Latin name 'Flos Chrysanthemi'.

I googled for translation of Ju Hua to English but had difficulty understanding a lot of it but I found this:

Chrysanthemum (juhua) has been cultivated since ancient times as a decorative plant, and so the designation of another species as “wild” (yejuhua) is in contrast to the garden variety, but in modern China both medicinal varieties are obtained in large quantities from cultivated plants. Yang Yifan (4) describes the main types based on color (bai = white; huang = yellow); taste (gan = sweet), and source (ye = wild variety), starting with the standard Chrysanthemum morifolium

So, perhaps Ju-Hua is just the Chinese name for Chrysanthemum?

Hi Lin, thank you for looking into this and your help. I think you're right about Ju-Hua being another name for chrysanthemum... going to look at that link.

Christine, you are welcome. Apparently 'Juhuanao' that @zuzu linked to in our database is a true cultivar name: http://www.actahort.org/books/404/404_1.htm but I can't find anything about a Chrysanthemum called Ju-Hua.

The Flora of China discusses it as well.

Looks like I dropped the ball and haven't followed up here.

This morning I ran across this plant at Annie's Remedy and noticed this is how they have the plant listed:

I guess I could propose that the name 'Ju-Hua' be added to the list under C. morifolium, or as 'Also sold as'. Shrug!
