As the seasons change, so do flowers – and natives are very much in fashion this spring!
We caught up with Jacque from Fifth Avenue Florist in Palm Beach who says that natives are just starting to flourish and gave us some hot tips on how to get the most out of a bunch of native blooms.
- Textures are on trend this season, so mix up your bouquet with flowers of all shapes, sizes and colours. From petite flowers like Geraldton wax to big, bold blooms like the King Protea, mixing it up with assorted native varieties creates a bouquet that is wild, relaxed and natural.
- Natives have a long vase life in the warmer weather and thrive in our environment, so if you’re looking for something that will last, these are your go-to! Tip: Change your vase water regularly to keep them smelling fresh and healthy.
- Getting hitched? Natives are gracing the pages of wedding magazines across the nation, and are becoming an increasingly popular choice for the bride-to-be! From wedding bouquets to styling and flowers crowns, natives are extremely versatile.
- For a bouquet with a soft, subtle fragrance, you can’t go past eucalyptus gum and wildflowers. This is not only the perfect gift, but the ideal accessory for a fresh scented home.
