Chrysanthemum (Ju Hua)

These beautiful chrysanthemum photos were taken just this morning by Faculty Member Amira Kusala in her home garden.
Chrysanthemum or Ju Hua has pungent, sweet, bitter and slightly cold properties. Associated with the Lung and Liver meridians, in Traditional Chinese Medicine, Ju Hua is known to pacify the liver, release toxins, dispel wind, and clear heat.
