The chrysanthemum family contains two species, one classed as an enemy, and one as a plant, much in the same way as the Pikmin. This family is based on the real-life chrysanthemum genus. Members belong to the luminosus and taraxacum genus.
The Creeping Chrysanthemum is a carnivorous member of the Chrysanthemum family. It is a large plant-like creature with a red mouth, two eyes on its shoulders disguised as flowers, and two arm-like tentacles that it uses to move around. This creature disguises itself as a Margaret, rising up out of the ground and attacking prey that ventures near; as such, they are often found near real Margarets. It can be distinguished from a Margaret because its eyes are visible when camouflaged.
Chrysanthemums are a real-world family of flowers, and greatly resemble the in-game family's members.
Interestingly, the Creeping Crysanthemum has the genus Taraxacum, even though it is not part of the dandelion family. In real life, this is impossible, as different species cannot be in the same genus and different families.
