As a sparkling flower, the amaryllis brings warmth in cold days. It’s a star of the holiday season, that continues to shine into the first warm days of spring. Let this long-stemmed and stately beauty light up your designs this winter.
In winter — and at the beginning of spring — we can enjoy the seductive scent and flower spectacle of the lilac. Choose white, pink, violet, dark blue or purple-blue. The latter variety is also used to make softly fragrant perfumes, full of relaxation and romance. Which colour do you like best?
In the Wild West of the United States grows a beautiful flower with an even better name: the lisianthus. This winter flower is versatile. It comes in white, green, blue, pink, lilac, purple and salmon. Some flowers even have petals with multiple colours. The petals are very soft and delicate, so make sure to handle with care. Lisianthus is the symbol of gratitude, which makes this flower a perfect thankyou gift.
A slender stem with splendid orchid flowers attached: beyond any reasonable doubt, we can say it’s the Cymbidium. Choose from sprays with red, purple, pink, orange, yellow, green or bicolour flowers. Look out for scented varieties, that smell wonderfully sweet.
You don’t need much more than a waving cloud of mimosa to make a statement with your floral designs. Especially on grey winter days, these tiny pompoms of bright yellow flowers bring a welcome dose of sunshine. The offical Latin name of is winter flower is Acacia. She is available in different varieties, such as Clair de Lune, Floribunda and Lungi Flora.
The ever-cheerful tulip comes in white, red, yellow, pink, purple, orange, green or with multi-coloured petals. The shapes of the tulip are also a feast for the eye. You can find them with a single or double row of petals, whilst there are also eye-catching fringed and parrot tulips with serrated petals, and there’s the playful lily-flowered tulip. Peony tulips look like peonies, and French tulips are exceptionally tall (unlike the average French mademoiselle) and have very large flowers.
