Agapanthus, also known as Lily of the Nile, is a beautiful flower that is in the shape of a firework! It has a similar stem shape to the Allium with a head that has larger flowers sprouting from the top. It is available in white, blue, and lavender. Each bundle is ordered with approximately 5 stems so be sure to order enough to fill your desired flower plan.
This species is native to South Africa and there are about 6 to 10 different species of the plant.
If you grow this flower in your garden you will see it bloom from late spring to early fall. Be sure to plant it in a warm environment because they do not like the cold.
If you use these flowers during a winter wedding be sure to cover them during transport or else they will brown!
These flowers can reach up to two meters in height which is great for bouquets because you make them any stem length you prefer!
The cluster of bell shape flowers make for a great addition to your bouquet because they take up a great amount of space.
When putting together the meaning of Agapanthus the word means love flower, what a great time to incorporate them into your big day!
I enjoy this flower most when it is used in a wildflower color combination bouquet!
This flower can last for 6-10 days in a vase but for your wedding day I would suggest getting it in about 1 day prior to your event. It doesn’t require time to open such as the peony or garden rose so it is okay to receive it right before placing it into floral foam or a bouquet. Another great aspect about this flower is that it doesn’t have much of a scent so for those guests who are allergic to flowers this is a good one to consider! Use this blog as your inspiration but there are so many ways to use this flower throughout your bouquets and arrangements!
