Colors and shapes
Have you ever looked closely at the petals of the amaryllis? They look like they’re made of fabulous velvet. In terms of colour, they come in white, red, yellow, pink, salmon, purple, orange and bi-colored. There are usually four to six imposing flowers on the stem and no foliage. That’s why they sometimes call the Amaryllis the ‘Naked Lady’ in the United States.
The amaryllis symbolises pride and enchanting beauty. It expresses a feeling of friendship and affection. This is the perfect flower if you want to capture hearts.
Anyone looking to discover the amaryllis’s birthplace needs to travel to South, Central America and the Caribbean. This radiant flower is a descendant of the Narcissus family, and grows from a bulb. Did you know that the name ‘Amaryllis’ comes from the Greek word ‘amarussein’, which means ‘sparkling’ or ‘radiant’?
Bouquet inspiration with amaryllis
The amaryllis combines well, and effortlessly fits into various styles. Looking for simplicity? Then combine amaryllis with Viburnum. Fancy something livelier, but still restrained? Make a fantastic white bouquet with amaryllis, lilac and magnolia.
A robust bouquet also works well. Take a sturdy vase and place holly and amaryllis bulbs in it to create a bouquet that no-one can ignore! Naturally your florist can always help you to create these bouquets.
