FLOWERS & GIFTS WITH AN ORGANIC TWIST

LISIANTHUS
lisi1

Country Of Origin

The lisianthus originates from North America, where it grows in riverbeds in the desert and prairie. In the states of Texas, Nebraska, Nevada and Colorado this plant is also called the prairie gentian. Although originally an American beauty, the lisianthus' rise to fame really started in Japan. It was Japanese growers who crossbred the prairie gentian in the 1930s. This resulted in today's lisianthus.

Colours and shapes of the lisianthus

The lisianthus is multifaceted. It comes in white, red, blue, yellow, pink, purple and orange. Some flowers even have petals in multiple colours ... And lisianthus petals are not only colourful, but also very soft and delicate.

Care tips

•    Trim the stems slightly diagonally. Use a sharp knife for this.
•    Remove the excess leaves so that there are no leaves in the water.
•    Place the lisianthus in a clean vase with clean water.
•    Regularly top up the vase: lisianthus needs a lot of water.
•    The thin petals mean that the water in the flowers evaporates rapidly, so do not place them in direct sunlight or near other sources of heat. Do not place the lisianthus in a draft or next to the fruit bowl either.

The lisianthus's symbolism

The lisianthus appears gentle and cute, but it has a powerful symbolism. This flower represents appreciation, gratitude and charisma. Making it the perfect candidate for a gift bouquet.

 

Hydrangea

Country Of Origin

The hydrangea originates from Asia and South America. Interesting fact: its chic name, Hydrangea, comes from 'hydro' (water) and 'angeion' (pitcher), because the shape of the hydrangea is reminiscent of an old water pitcher.

Colours and shapes of the hydrangea

Hydrangeas love colour. They come in all shades of red, pink, purple, white, green and blue, but there are also hydrangeas which combine multiple colours. Alongside bright tones, there are also 'colour changed' flowers. These hydrangeas have a green/red/brown colouring and are good for drying. This no-nonsense flower also offers many options in terms of shape. Choose globe-shaped mophead hydrangeas, hydrangeas with small flowers in the middle and large petals on the edge (lacecap), or hydrangeas with a plume shape (panicle).

Care tips for consumers

How to get optimum enjoyment from your hydrangeas.

• Trim a 1-2cm piece off the stem.
• Place the hydrangeas in a clean vase with clean water.
• Ensure the correct room temperature of no more than 20°.
• Don't place your vase of hydrangeas in a draught, in direct sunlight, near a source of heat or beside a fruit bowl.

How to make a hydrangea bouquet

The hydrangea is great to mix with carnations, callas and gladioli; all flowers that are widely available.  A bouquet of hydrangeas combined with Celosia cristata, Viburnum and Chasmanthium is also lovely. And how about the weathered wooden trough with the beautiful blue explosion of colour from hydrangeas with gentians and white Eryngium (sea holly)? You can go in so many directions with hydrangeas, so surprise and inspire yourself! 

Hydrangea symbolism

The hydrangea is packed with symbolism. The flower symbolises gratitude, grace and beauty. It also radiates abundance, thanks to the profusion of flowers and its generous round shape.
