Of course, being a chrysanthemum breeder/geneticist, I'm always on the lookout for how this crop is used in Europe and the Czech Republic. Nowhere in the U.S. would you find a billboard devoted to just chrysanthemums, but here they are in prominence everywhere in Bohemia!!
You might not be aware, however, that there are native species of chrysanthemums in the Czech Republic. Here, for instance, is Chrysanthemum serotinum, a species we've used at the University of Minnesota Chrysanthemum breeding program since the 1930s as a source of winter hardiness!
This fine specimen is growing in the plant identification collection at the Institute of Botany in Trebon. It must be one genotype which is self-incompatible as there were no seeds in the composite inflorescences (I just had to check, of course!).
