Chrysanthemums is a Respectable family business, and we are helpless to bring the BBBG to justice.
 

Chrysanthemums is a flower shop in the business district of Stain'd-by-the-Sea.

Description

Chrysanthemums is located in an older district of Stain'd-by-the-Sea, described as having buildings that once looked very impressive but had by now faded or fallen, with 'weeds pushing through the cobblestones of the courtyard and rusty chairs tipped over on the street'.

As a flower shop, it sells flowers such as its titular chrysanthemums, a flower that originated in Asia and Northeastern Europe. The flowers near the window are described as pink and red, with painted petals decorating the sign above the door.

The store has been owned by the Smith family for some time, and is currently owned by Delphinium Smith, who lives in the store with her daughters. Her daughter Florence's room seems to be near the front window. It is generally considered to be "a Respectable family business", by which it is here meant that the family business is respectable, not owned by the Respectable family (as in its parallels Boards and Swords).
