MILKSTAR, GENTIAN & PANICUM
Our BLOOMEN of the week bouquet “Starry Night” for the floor vase this week looks like a glimpse of the late summer sky – the dark, intense blue of the gentian reflects the night sky, while the milk star and panicum look like sparkling stars and the perfect contrast to the gentian form.

Care instructions and further information about Milky Star do you think …? Find here. The Milky Star (Ornithogalum) particularly impresses with its petals, which are star-like (hence the name) and artfully grouped together. The delicate scent and the exotic beauty of the flower make the milk star a special eye-catcher in every bouquet.
It is very easy to care for: Simply cut it freshly after arrival and change the water every 2-3 days.
Blue, blue, blue blooms gentian – and we love it precisely because of its intense, deep blue color! Gentian originally comes from the temperate mountain areas of the Andes, Pyrenees and Alps. It got its botanical name Gentiana after the king of the Roman province of Illyria, who is said to have been the first to discover the medicinal properties of the plant. You can find more information about the gentian here.
For maintenance, cut the gentian at a slight angle and place it in cold water. With each water change, the stems should be shortened again by 1-2 cm.
Panicum or millet is actually a grain that is grown mainly in Asia. We think that it also works very well in the vase as a cut flower and gives the bouquet a special kick. Panicum only has to be freshly cut once and is otherwise easy to care for.
Our vase recommendation for “Starry Night”
For the long-handled “Starry Night” combination, we recommend a tall vase with an opening that is not too wide, so that the milk star and gentian can get a good hold.
We wish you a wonderful week with the flowers!
