Chrysanthemum [菊 - きく, kiku] is the name of a suit in traditional hanafuda decks. It is generally taken to be the ninth suit, representing the month of September [九月 - くがつ kugatsu] or the numeral 9. The cards in this suit all feature variegated yellow and red or orange chrysanthemum blossoms. There are two Chaff cards, one Blue Ribbon, and one Animal. The Animal card of the Chrysanthemum suit features a red Sake Cup [盃 - さかずき, sakezuki] inscribed with a character meaning “longevity” [寿 - じゅ, ju].
