Flower spotlight: lisianthus
Lisianthus, most often seen in bridal bouquets and other special occasion arrangements, is a single or double bloom flower that grows in a variety of yellows, reds, pinks, and purples. Native to the warmer regions of Mexico, South America, the Caribbean, and the southern United States, these pretty perennials are also known as Texas bluebells or prairie gentians.
Descended from wildflowers and popularized by the beauty and delicacy of Japanese culture, these elegant and unique flowers have become a staple in the floral world. They pack a powerful punch when it comes to sending arrangements with meaning because they represent not only gratitude and appreciation, but also a life-long bond between two people, which makes them perfect for partners and platonic friends!
The key to the perfect lisianthus pairing is in the color. Yellow symbolizes positive energy and joy. Purple is a sign of nobility, royalty, and beauty. White stands for spirituality, purity, and a life-long bond. Pink represents affection, romance, and love.
For the loyal life-long friend that is always there when you need them, send a sign of your appreciation and gratitude with white and yellow lisianthus blooms paired with hydrangeas in a sweet decorative wood box alongside their favorite chocolates. Add an additional heartfelt touch with a handwritten note on one of our locally sourced handmade cards. If they prefer the shinier things in life, glam up their day with a big, bold bouquet full of purple lisianthus, lilies, gerbera daisies, and roses in a tall crystal vase.
For an anniversary arrangement, pair pink lisianthus with orchids, ranunculus, and red roses in an elegant, translucent glass vase. Take new brides back to their fairytale wedding day with a lovely white metal basket featuring delicate scrollwork and overflowing with white lisianthus, bright gerbera daisies, hydrangeas, and white roses.
