The November birth flowers, chrysanthemums, are often nicknamed "mums."

The word, "chrysanthemum," comes from the Greek prefix "chrys-" meaning golden and "-anthemion," meaning flower. It's original colors were golden, though mums now come in many colors.

Chrysanthemums are perennials. After they finish blooming in the fall, mulch them with several inches of straw to protect them from the cold.

A red chrysanthemum means "I love you."
A white chrysanthemum means innocence, purity, and pure love.
A yellow chrysanthemum means slighted love.
Both the Chinese and Japanese consider chrysanthemums a powerful emblem of youth. A petal placed in the bottom of a glass of wine is thought to enhance longevity. The Chinese also believe that it prevents gray hair. 

 The November birthstone, topaz, symbolizes love and affection. It is believed to give the wearer increased strength and intellect. Ancient Egyptians thought the stone was colored by the mighty sun god Ra and was worn as an amulet against harm. Topaz has been found at a number of localities around the world, including Brazil, Nigeria, Sri Lanka, Russia, Burma, Pakistan, USA and Mexico. The premier source is near Ouro Prêto in Brazil's Minas Gerais state.
