Flowers you have never heard of, but want in your bouquet!

Lisianthus



 

Lisianthus blooms are similar in shape to a rose, but less petals. Typically found with buds on each stem, which lends itself more of a wildflower. Or clustering of just the blooms itself create an elegant formal unique bouquet. Cool tones, bi-colors, and single or double blooms available.

Thistle

Thistle, an unusual prickly blue flower. It creates an earthy organic feel in any bouquet.  The Eryngium varieties are available in cone shaped and round petite balls. In the blue flower world, which varieties are limited, it’s great to have a texture option.

Protea

 protea, charleston, tiger lily

 

Protea ~ pincushion protea is an unusual yet stunning flower that can add an exotic or wildflower touch into any bouquet. This novelty flower gets its name due to its resemblance of a pincushion!  Contrary to its name, the “pins” that form the bloom have rounded tips and are not prickly to touch. The vibrant orange color has red undertones and would look beautiful in bouquet and centerpiece designs and hold well in hot temperatures without wilting.
