tips, tricks, & fun facts:

  • These flowers pack a serious punch with their unique shape and color. Pair them with more cost effective blooms to create a stunning arrangement or bouquet.
  • We love a gloriosa as a boutonniere. If you aren’t afraid of your men in pink, give this unique bloom a chance!
  • These flowers look delicate but they actually have an impressive shelf life. Keep this beauty in a vase with fresh water out of direct sunlight and you will get up to two weeks with your new favorite flower.
  • Do you love lilies? Gloriosas are part of the same family!
  • This is the national flower of Zimbabwe

Statice

limonium-1
limonium-2

street name: Statice

god-given name: Limonium

colors available: lavender, pink, blue, and white

meaning: rememberance

seasonality: Available year-round

cost: $7-10 per bunch

tips & tricks:

  • These dry really nicely as they hold their shape/color when dried
  • Due to the rigid stems of limonium, they make an excellent filler flower. Each stem has many small, but strong, branches to fill in blank spaces in arrangements and support more delicate flowers surrounding them
  • We love limonium in flower crowns to give a subtle hint of color to the surround foliage
  • As limonium dries, it can make a big mess! The tiny purple leaves become delicate as the flower dies and they will fall from the branch if bumped of jostled.
