Chrysanthemums are in bloom in Baltimore.

Under the theme "Asian Roots: The Art of the Chrysanthemum," the Howard Peters Rawlings Conservatory and Botanic Gardens has been displaying the fall flower Tuesday through Sunday since Nov. 2. The flowers, also called mums, originated in Asia and northeastern Europe.

The show at Rawlings Conservatory in Druid Hill Park features origami displays and hundreds of chrysanthemums, grown and assembled by members of the Baltimore Department of Recreation and Parks.

The event, which ends Nov. 25, is free, though a $2 donation will be accepted.
