Amaryllis is a classic statement flower: large, distinctive and stately. You simply can’t overlook it - the smooth, thick, hollow stems are too unusual for that, and the flowers are too eye-catching. Amaryllis’ petals are very special: they look like they’re made of luxurious velvet and come in white, red, yellow, pink, salmon, purple, orange and bi-coloured. The leafless stem usually bears four ...Read more

Expressive branches, colourful berries: enjoy the fruit of the summer with berries as a feature in autumn bouquets and arrangements.
