MIMOSES, CRASPEDIA, CHRYSANTHEMUMS & SANTINI
The current season, when it gets dark earlier and light later, invites you to sit comfortably by the window with a cup of tea and a blanket, watch the autumn sky and let your thoughts wander – an Autumn Daydream . With our BLOOMS of the week we want to create exactly this feeling and therefore send you a wonderful combination of mimosas, craspadia, santini and chrysanthemums.

the mimosa – or silver acacia, as it is actually called – originally came from Australia and can now also be found in many southern European countries. The plant is not only very popular as a cut flower in many bouquets, but is also used in perfume production, pharmacy and homeopathy due to the essential oils it contains. Simply cut the mimosa freshly again after it arrives. Since it is very delicate, it may contract and dry quickly – however, it retains its bright yellow color and still looks good. You can find more information and care instructions here.
Another yellow highlight in “Autumn Daydream” are those Craspedia balls. You have to look very carefully at these extraordinary flowers to discover the tiny little flowers that come together to form a compact ball. Craspedia only need a fresh cut and you will enjoy it for a long time. You can find more information and care instructions here.
Chrysanthemums are often referred to as the autumn flowers par excellence. The flowers from the daisy family were very popular in ancient China 2000 years ago and became the national flower of Japan. They stand for a long life and have been our pleasure here in Europe since the middle of the 19th century. Santini are a subspecies of the currently around 30 types of chrysanthemums and were created by crossing several chrysanthemums. Their smaller, more compact flowers add a little contrast to our BLOOMS of the week and make the combination complete! More information and care instructions for chrysanthemums and santini can be found here and here.
Our vase recommendation for “Autumn Daydream”
In order to let the combination “Autumn Daydream” work best, it is best to arrange it in a sufficiently high vase with a slightly wider opening.
We wish you a wonderful week with the flowers!
