This week the Heliconia Tropical comes to us from the distant tropics, which immediately transports you to an exotic rainforest landscape with its striking orange-red flower wings. The colorful exotic is at home in South America, Australia and Oceania, where its diversity is shown in around 100 to 200 different species, some of which can reach heights of up to eight meters! In its natural environment the plant is often sought out for its sweet nectar by all hummingbird species, but also by mammals such as flying foxes and rats, which in turn ensure the continued existence of the flower. The extraordinary plant found its way to Europe in the 18th century and has since been particularly popular in botanical gardens, but also in summer bouquets for an exotic kick with a particularly long shelf life.
The yellow calla shines just as intensely as the Heliconia this week. The elegant flower, whose name comes from the Greek and means “physical beauty”, comes in many different colors, even black! Calla is particularly characterized by its twisted calyx, which consists of just a single leaf and slowly opens when the flower blooms. The association of the blossom with a chalice brought the calla its symbolism: In addition to the beauty, the delicate flower is associated with celebrations and a happy disposition due to its shape and is therefore often used for holiday decorations. In our combination of the BLOOMS of the week, the calla gives a touch of elegance and with its yellow color shines with the other flowers in the bet.
The third flower of this week is also a real highlight: the orange gladiolus. Its shape is reminiscent of a sword, from which not only the origin of its name, but also its meaning can be derived: “Gladiolus” comes from the Roman “gladius”, which literally means short sword and has always been associated with victory and pride with the stately flower. The gladiolus originally comes from South Africa, but there are now also wild species in Europe that are even native to Germany. The flowers that grow on both sides of the stem come in many bright colors, which makes the gladiolus a particularly popular summer flower!
Together, our BLOOMS of the week will take you to a paradise of colors and summer freshness this week!
