While the name Antonov does not have the same grandiosity as that of the American Boeing or McDonnell Douglas, builder of the DC aircraft, Russian aircraft manufacturer Antonov did develop the world's largest aeroplane, the Antonov An-225. Intended to be an aircraft for the transport of space shuttles, it was also suitable for other cargo. And just like this Antonov was famous for its sheer size, size is what sets this chrysanthemum variety, which bears the same name, apart.
The flowers of the white disbud chrysanthemum Antonov can grow up to 20 centimetres. This creates a monumental impression, which gives the Antonov an exclusive and luxury appeal that no American can equal.
