The ancient Chinese found the first culinary uses for chrysanthemums. The tradition continues today with everything from stems and leaves, to petals and roots, being used for steeping sweet tea or flavoring dishes. While these little darlings, 'Santini' and 'Micro Button' look good enough to eat, they are purely eye candy.
