Flower of the Week- Calla Lily

14 Jun

 

This summer wedding season, calla lilies (Zantedeschia aethiopica) , in all their vibrant color and size variations, are quickly becoming a favorite choice for outfit decorations, bouquets, room arrangements, etc. They are well suited for any ornamental need!

Also called Trumpet lilies, Arum lilies, and Pig lilies, Calla lilies have an elegant, swooping curvature to the petal shape and have large and mini sizes. They come in white, lavender, purple, pink, red, peach, orange, yellow, green, and the very intriguing bicolored forms.

Calla lilies are perennial and require part shade, and full sun in cooler climates. They are definitely not edible, but who would want to stop looking at them any how?

They are fragrant and  last between four and eight days, but look lovely dried if you want to hold on them to remember your special occasion!

25 Feb

This week’s flower has gotten a bad rap, but when used correctly it is quite beautiful.
Gypsophilia
gypsophila
Gypsophilia can also be known as just gyp, but is most commonly referred to as baby’s breath. It is usually seen in white, but it can also be pink. Everyone has seen it as a filler for rose arrangements and corsages, but the current trend is to use it for weddings. It is usually seen alone in bouquets, centerpieces, aisle markers etc.

Baby’s breath comes in several different varieties, some have tons of tiny blooms (Million Star) and some have bigger blooms, but less of them (New Love). It is very versatile and can be dressed up for an elegant affair, or dressed down for a rustic one.

Meaning: Festivity, Innocence, Pure of Heart, Happiness (kind of perfect for a wedding)
