Look beautiful in your floor vase: Japanese roses
Hardly any other flower exudes as much summer feeling as the Japanese rose. It enchants us with its authentic, natural flower, which is available in many colors. Dreamy, romantic and simply beautiful – these are our BLOOMS OF THE WEEK for your floor vase.
ORIGIN OF JAPANESE ROSES
Japanese roses are typical summer flowers. In the warm summer months you can particularly enjoy their delicate blooms. Their petals are characteristic. Whether in red, blue or white – it is a real feast for the eyes in every vase. The Japanese rose (bot. Eustoma) is also known under the name of the tulip rose or prairie gentian and originally comes from the deserts of North America. In the states of Texas, Nebraska, Nevada and Colorado, the plant is therefore also known as the prairie gentian. Hence an American beauty whose triumphant advance only began in Japan. It was Japanese gardeners who crossed the prairie gentian in the 1930s, from which the eustoma of today developed. This is where the German name “Japanrose” comes from, named after the country in which it was first sold.
MEANING OF JAPANESE ROSES
The rich colors of the Japanese rose stand for creativity, are seductive, charming, mysterious and wild at the same time. They develop their full effect in a tall, slim vase – this is how the stems are supported and held together when carrying the many flowers. The closer the stems are at the bottom, the more elegant, full and at the same time more extravagant the bouquet appears.
Decoration tip: Tone-on-tone flower arrangements look particularly elegant. Simply arrange the blossoms of the Japanese rose alone or with other cut flowers of the same color in a glass vase.
CARE JAPANESE ROSES
Japanese roses should be cut at an angle before they go into the vase. You can use the previous section as a guide. Also give them plenty of fresh water so that they can enjoy the pretty flowers for as long as possible.
