the chrysanthemum belongs to the daisy family and was originally mainly distributed in East Asia. This is why it has a very important historical significance in Asian countries. She is even revered here and is the ultimate symbol of happiness and health. It was not until the 19th century that this magnificent flower was brought to Europe. In Germany the chrysanthemum also stands for luck, but especially for truthfulness and persistence. The name chrysanthemum comes from the Greek and means gold (“krusos“) And flower (“anthemon“). We often use these so-called gold flowers to say to the recipient “I love you” and “You make me happy”. With their colorful appearance, flowers of this genus delight us with their intense pink-red color, crowned with a green heart.
Matching this, the orange-yellow romps about in this bouquet Alstroemeria. It is not only a summery addition in terms of color – its gently curved petals adorn several flowers per stem.
Each stem can have up to eight flowers! Coming from the other side of the Pacific from the Chilean and Peruvian Andes, it brings a South American Latina flair with it. It is not for nothing that this flower is called “Alstoemeria Dancing Queen”, the dancing queen among flowers. The Alstroemeria is colloquially also called Inca lily and stands for dreaming, devotion and friendship. A flower full of positive energy that is accompanied in this bouquet by a distant princely relative: the lily “Menorca”.
With trumpet-shaped flowers in a magnificent yellow, the “Liliium Menorca” is a flower with character, a lot of pride and expressiveness. This genus has its origin in China and symbolizes spiritual purity and fertility. As a cut flower, it stands for hope and also expresses romance: lilies say “You are on my mind and I hope that you …”. With proper care, the lilies will bloom for up to 16 days! It is important to cut the stems at an angle and not to add too much freshness-retaining agent to the water. Since lilies are very sensitive to ethylene, the vase should definitely be placed away from a bowl of fruit. It is very unusual that this genus hardly smells. For this, our arrangement will be completed this week with a cinnamon leaf.
The name of this plant already reveals the sweetish-cinnamon scent of its leaves. Of the Cinnamon tree belongs to the laurel family and originally comes from India. Like the bay leaf, the simple but sharply defined cinnamon leaf brings a Roman glory with it and makes our BLOOMEN of the week a bouquet full of class, style and global temperament!
