Oh Lizzie! – Loose Lisianthus Arrangement

with Lisianthus, Ti Tree and Dusty Miller foliage

There’s a soft southern twist to this week’s fleurs, featuring the rustic Southern belle of the flower world – locally grown lisianthus. Also known as Texan Bluebells, we love these delicate cup shaped blossoms, topping straight slender stems. They come in ivory, dusty pink, peach, lilac, purple and bi-colour (white petals edged with pink or purple).

Lizzies are effortlessly elegant styled on their own with a sprig of pretty green foliage but are also happy to take the back seat and add a gorgeous softness to more complicated arrangements. It’s easy to see why they were once one of the most commonly requested blooms for weddings.

When it comes to stylings, the leaves can be removed completely for more petal punch, but this will slightly shorten the lifespan of your blooms.We’ve paired your lizzies with velvety dusty miller foliage – a classic romantic flower combination. And to add a bit of contrast, you’ll also find a couple of stems of flowering ti tree and tiny button-like matricaria.

This week you can keep things classic, full and short stemmed, or let it all hang out in a loose textured arrangement like the one in this week’s tutorial.
