Flower spotlight: Aster
Asters are a delicate little flower. These sweet perennials work well as colorful accents in floral arrangements and bouquets, and they really create a foundation for beautiful floral decor when they’re paired with other blooms.
Here are a few ways to consider incorporating aster flowers in your next Lilygrass order.
Coming in a wide range of colors, asters are great floral accents in rustic and bohemian wedding bouquets and decor. They work well bunched together, but keep in mind that it will take a lot more blooms to fill out an arrangement due to their smaller size. Asters pair well with almost anything, including decorative foliage like thistle.
With summer just around the corner, asters would make lovely accents in a colorful wreath or in a unique mix with succulents or other greenery. Their long, slender stems make it easy to weave them into living or dried wreaths for doors and even as decor around the house. Another elegant way to display asters is to take a large bundle and lay them in a basket in guest rooms or bathrooms.
With almost 200 different varieties to choose from, this daisy-like little wildflower also comes in a wide range of smells. The popular white blooms are scentless, but other varieties can smell sweet and chocolatey, musky, light or heavy. One variety even emits a rotting smell that attracts flies for pollination, but we’ll be sure to choose the right bloom that looks (and smells) lovely.
Asters signify wisdom and love, so they’re wonderful to use as gifts for family members and friends. Consider sending some sweet little bouquets in short, square vases or baskets to the ones you love to celebrate Easter. Or surprise a special someone just because with a fresh cut arrangement full of asters, snapdragons, and alstroemeria.
