Look beautiful in your table vase: roses and safflower
When many summer flowers have already faded, the days are getting shorter and the weather colder, nature shows its most beautiful face again. The so-called Indian Summer comes up trumps with a real color spectacle. This week we are sending you orange-pink passion fruit roses together with autumn safflowers – welcome autumn in its most beautiful variety of colors!
ORIGIN OF ROSES
The noble passion fruit roses have a particularly great color gradient. You can’t really determine their color: are they salmon, apricot or pink tones? A little bit of everything and for this very reason you cannot get tired of them. The distinctive beauties have their home in the northern temperate and subtropical zone. The developmental center of origin is in Asia. Most species are still found here today. Roses are originally only native to the northern hemisphere. All roses in the southern hemisphere were settled by humans.
MEANING OF ROSES
There are many meanings and symbols that are assigned to the rose family. In many cultures the rose stands for love, femininity, romance and vitality. Their meaning changes depending on the color and shape. For example, white roses stand for devotion and respect, red roses for passionate love. The delicate, pink bush florets, on the other hand, radiate cheerful, playful serenity. The rose has fascinated, enchanted, touched and seduced people for hundreds of years and even we simply cannot resist this temptation and this week we like to have our rose-colored glasses put on.
ORIGIN OF SALE THISTLE
The safflower (Carthamus tinctorius) belongs to the sunflower family. It grows in Egypt as well as in Central Europe. It is mainly cultivated as a useful plant for oil production or as a medicinal and dye plant. The ornamental forms of the safflower are thornless and can be found in gardens and are also great eye-catchers in bouquets. As a decorative cut flower, which is available in different colors, it adorns every bouquet and gives it a great splash of color.
TAKE CARE OF ROSES AND SLEEVES
You don’t need to be afraid of contact with the roses, because we have carefully removed the thorns from the roses. Please cut the roses diagonally with a sharp knife to make it easier for them to absorb water and thus to extend their shelf life. Safflower is also happy to have a fresh cut when you arrive.
