Meet & Greet Amaryllis @ FleuraMetz

The Flower Agenda will focus on the amaryllis in weeks 48-52. FleuraMetz puts the spotlight on this flower with a Meet & Greet.

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. The name 'Amaryllis' comes from the Greek word 'amarussein', which means 'sparkling' or 'radiant'.

Colours and shapes of the amaryllis
The amaryllis's petals are very unusual; they look like they're made from velvet. In terms of colour, they come in white, red, yellow, pink, salmon, purple, orange and bi-coloured. There are usually four to six imposing flowers on the stem. The amaryllis does not have any foliage. That's why they sometimes call her the 'Naked Lady' in the United States.

How to make an amaryllis bouquet
The amaryllis combines well, and effortlessly fits into various styles. If a customer fancies simplicity, amaryllis can be combined with Viburnum. If they prefer 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!

The amaryllis's symbolism
The amaryllis symbolises pride and enchanting beauty. It expresses a feeling of friendship and affection. This is the perfect flower if a customer wants to capture hearts.
