A look at the seasonal flowers you’ll find in some of our bouquets over the next couple of weeks. They’ll add beauty and balance to your home and are part of our FLOW collection.
Lisianthus ‘Reina Champagne’ (1)
Lisianthus, in family Gentianaceae, bubble over with romance and charisma – none more so than the Reina Champagne. The full, semi-fringed petals add a regal flair and the strong stems make lisianthus a good flower use in the tripod you build when arranging your bouquet. ‘Reina’, is queen in Spanish. Let’s raise a toast to this elegant bloom – long may she reign (in your vase!).
Allium ‘Gladiator’ (2)
Tall and majestic with a sword-like stem. ‘Gladiator’ actually comes from the Latin ‘gladius’, meaning sword. A pretty fitting name for this bright purple flower that adds drama to any bouquet! Allium is known as an ornamental onion, because… it is just that! When you trim its stem (1-2 cm off at a sharp angle), take a whiff – you’ll smell onion!
Gypsophila paniculata (3)
The airy tufts of Gypsophila paniculata are more commonly known as baby’s breath. It grows native in central and eastern Europe in dry, chalky places that are rich in the mineral gypsum. ‘Gypsophila’ means chalk-loving in Greek. It’s hard not to let this delicate flower make your spirit soar, just a little, like marshmallow-pink clouds passing across a candy-coloured sky.
