Grab an easel and paintbrush, sculpt a vase, or plant an urban garden – it’s time to spark your imagination with flowers!
Delphinium ajacis (1)
Delphinium ajacis is an annual better known as rocket larkspur. Supposedly, because the flowers resemblance of a lark’s claw. Although, we’re dubious – these apple-blossom pink petals looks soft enough to sleep on! Rocket larkspur represents a carefree spirit. Just the flower to spark creativit y!
A green ocean with pastel-yellow seafoam, rolling into the distance. Not a fantasy, but a meadow of Limonium sinuatum in the wild. The genus, Limonium ( Plumbaginaceae family) , comes from leimon, Greek for meadow. This papery flower is better known as Statice, sea-lavender or marsh-rosemary. Although, it’s neither lavender nor rosemary! The best thing about statice is it looks stunning fresh or dried.
This stunning seasonal snapdragon is all dressed in tangerine to match the lengthening days and warmer weather. A ‘snaptastic’ flower care tip for antirrhinums is to remove any wilted or dried flowers at the bottom of the floral spike. It’ll encourage more to bloom at the top!
Tulipa vogue (4)
In vogue this spring (and every spring) is the tulip. Tulipa Vogue is a show stopping double tulip with a ruffle of pink petals. Tulips always bend toward the light, so be sure to keep stems healthy: change the water and re-trim 1 cm off the stem every three days. This bloom will bend like a beauty!
