Flower spotlight: Snapdragons

Antirrhinum are commonly known as snapdragons or dragon flowers because they resemble the head of a dragon opening and closing its mouth when squeezed from the sides. That’s a fun way for a flower to get its name, right?

They’re native to the United States, North Africa, and the rocky terrains in Europe. There are two distinct species of this unique flower, the garden snapdragon and the lilac snapdragon, though neither can breathe fire as far as we know.

Add an extra touch to your special event with a flower crown

Flower crowns are a great option for adults and children.  They are adorable on flower girls at a wedding and make super fun photos for toddlers or young girls. You can even add some festive fun to a special girls' night out dinner with flower crowns! Or add some flair to a colorful Easter outfit or other special event.

Gift ideas for spring

With the bone chilling winds of winter coming to an end soon (we hope), our thoughts turn to the bright and cheery colors of spring. For centuries, the spring season has been accompanied by celebrations of renewal and hope. Vivid spring hues are a wonderful way to bring life to any environment, no matter how dull.

Let’s talk about a few fun ways to incorporate them this season.

Flower spotlight: Orchids

Orchids are one of the most delicate flowers with a uniquely diverse aesthetic. Though the smaller sizes are more common, their size depends entirely upon their species. The giant orchid can reach up to 200 pounds in weight, while the smallest variety only reaches two millimeters in size. When the larger varieties grow in clusters they can reach up to one ton, though that’s not typically the kind of orchid you’ll find at a flower shop!
