My favorite time of year is upon us! SPRING! Here come all the lovelies for us to design with:
When you receive your Hellebore flowers, trim a bit off the stems and immediately plunge the stem ends (1/2”) into hot water containing a floral preservative for about 15 seconds. They last for about a week or longer!
Muscari – Grape Hyacinth
We suggest you get a few extra stems because they are delicate. Great for wedding bouquets!
Daffodils & Narcissus
Gorgeous “Erlicheer”, also known as Early Cheer are pleasantly fragrant and long-lasting. Yellow daffodils add a great pop of yellow to arrangements and a lovely way to announce spring has arrived!
Add some height to your flower arrangements with yellow blooming Forsythia branches.
Meleagris also known by the common name of checkered lily. Colors in the bunch can vary depending on the time of the season, burgundy with bronze tints and some yellow and cream, they do have short stems. They are imported from Holland, please order in advance for following week arrival.
Hyacinths are available in purple, light blue, pink, hot pink and white and they add the perfect spring touch to flower arrangements
A unique texture to add interest to your flower arrangements is flowering Pieris Japonica, also known as Andromeda. This long lasting flower is mainly available in white, however some pink is also available during the season.
Last but definitely not least in our spring-time round up is the Tulip! Tulips come in just about any color imaginable and a variety of shapes, the classic tulip shape, double petals, parrots and fringed edges! Ask your floral consultant for advice in picking out just the right ones!
This is just the tip of the iceberg of what’s available for spring, please ask your floral consultant what else might be in this week!
