Floral Gossip

Ms Lisianthus

Originally an American beauty and as known in Texas, Nebraska, Nevada and Colorado of America as the Prairie Gentian it was In the 1930’s, that Japanese growers crossed the Prairie Gentian, creating the Ms Lisianthus species we know as today.

Ms Lisianthus is a favourite of mine, she looks delicate but she is hard yakka, reminds me a lot of my personality. She blends well with her competition when it comes to weddings she certainly has the looks to pull it off standing next to Ms Rose, Ms Hydrangea and Ms Gardenia.

Her message hits home for me and i hope she touches you the same way she does me.

Enjoy my darling blossoms.
