Something very strange happened in Holland a little under 400 years ago. Certain tulip bulbs started to produce striped flowers, a condition which we now know was caused by a virus. However the effect on Dutch flower fanciers was astonishing.
Do flowers have personalities? We think so and that's why we've given a family of five dahlias individual names. So - preamble over - now it's time to meet Emily. Her social diary's full, her phone never stops ringing and her flat mates envy her energy.
Softly coloured and soft to the touch, our pussy willow stems are beautifully tactile and touchable. Subtly attractive displayed on their own, and ideal for adding texture and 'Easter Bunny' appeal to mixed arrangements.
Bloom flowers are so lifelike that sometimes bees mistake them for the real thing. So perhaps giant pandas (who are partial to bamboo shoots) might take a particular interest in this item? Admittedly the chance of a panda wandering in through the French windows is unlikely, but better safe than sorry - check the garden just in case.
