THREE EXOTIC FLOWERS OF THE MONTH!
In September we’re not going to be focusing on one flower, but three! Strelitzia, Gloriosa and Anthurium are each eye-catching characters that carry you off to sun-soaked destinations.
THREE FLOWERS IS THREE MORE REASONS TO GIFT FLOWERS!
1# Thanks to its appearance and origin, the Anthurium symbolises exotic beauty. The name Anthurium is derived from the Greek words ‘anthos’ and ‘oura’, which mean ‘flowering’ and ‘tail’.
2# The Gloriosa’s flowers represent ambition and success: the ideal gift for someone starting a new job or experiencing new beginning in some other way.
3# Strelitzia is seen as the flower of freedom, and also represents immortality. This special symbolism deserves a good story to go with it.
