Amaryllis Bowl for Corporate Setting
Time: 14 minutes and 55 seconds | Season: Winter / Spring
Wholesale approx cost: £10 – 20
In this demonstration, our tutor will share with you how to create a topiary tree using a beautiful, statement flower variety. Commonly associated with Christmas and winter, this flower variety is Amaryllis, otherwise known as Hippeastrum.
Amaryllis are a perfect bloom to use as a substitute for Oriental Lilies, creating a similar impact, but without the strong fragrance, which some people may be intolerant to.
Tips: When they are delivered, they will arrive in tight buds, flat packed and dry in boxes. As you can appreciate, open blooms do not travel well! They can be kept in the purpose made box in a cool, frost free environment for a few days allowing delay in their development in preparation for your event.
Tips: Amaryllis look fabulous no matter how you display them — combined with other flowers or on their own. The stems are very fragile, so handle with care to avoid “cracking”.
