November - when Fall turns to Winter. The flowers and plants that represent this month turn, too, from the riotous colors of Autumn to a simpler, demure palette of creams and greens. Chrysanthemums have made appearances on the floral calendar in earlier months, but the Japanese calendar adds in the graceful Willow, a debutante in any garden and the Chinese calendar gives us Gardenias, the heavenly-scented belle-of-the-ball.

English Calendar = Chrysanthemum

Chinese Calendar = Gardenia(Pai Ch'an)

Japanese Calendar = Willow (Yanagi)
