NOT ONE BUT THREE FLOWERS OF THE MONTH

Spring is in the air, the perfect chance to celebrate this with not one, but three spring flowers on the agenda: Ranunculus, Hyacinth and Narcissus (or Daffodil). At OZ Export we are focusing on these Spring bloomers the upcoming weeks. Will you introduce your customers to the Spring flowers as well?

THE ORIGINS OF RANUNCULUS, HYACINTHS AND NARCISSUS

  • The Ranunculus is originally from Mid-Asia, but with many detours it finally ended up in Europe where it received its official name: Ranunculus.
  • The Hyacinth came from Turkey, Syria and Lebanon to Europe around 1560.
  • The Narcissus blooms spontaneously in meadows, woods and on rocky places in West-Europe.

SEASONAL SPRING COLOURS AND SHAPES

  • The Ranunculus can have many different colours: white, yellow, orange, pink, red and purple.
  • The Hyacinth is waiting for you to be picked up in the colours white, red, yellow, pink, purple, orange or multi-coloured if you can’t choose one colour.
  • The most famous Narcissus is of course the yellow one, but there are also combinations with white or salmon-pink. Did you know that the Narcissus comes in different shapes and sizes? With or without leaves, with trumpets big or small, sweet smelling or no fragrance at all.

BOUQUET RECIPE WITH SPRING FLOWERS

Close your eyes… Imagine Spring, what colours do you see? To really get the Springy feeling, choose orange, blue, purple and white. Arrange the flowers in a high, cylindrical vase. With that much colour in a bouquet, the vase does not have to be special, the flowers will steal the spotlight anyway.

The ingredients for a beautiful Spring Flower bouquet are:

  • Ranunculus
  • Hyacinthus
  • Narcissus
  • Fritillaria
  • Briza
  • Fern leaves
  • Freesia
