A Blooming hoot Featuring Vibrant Lathyrus

I've changed my mind entirely regarding this bloom

Since the start of my floral career, there have been flowers that I have absolutely adored as well as others that, for various reasons, I have just shunned working with. I think any florist will agree with me on this.

One of the flowers I've always avoided is lathyrus

One of those flowers I just avoided was lathyrus. They were either of poor quality or didn't last long enough for me to use them in bridal bouquets and other arrangements every time I tried to work with them or incorporate them into my creations.

I had the false image of this bloom back then—or, to be more precise, up until last week. I reasoned that they were simply not worth the money because they were both too pricey and delicate. For the reasons listed above, not even my flower supplier stocked up on lathyrus, and they hardly ever supplied it to their clients.

Pleasantly Lathyrus

You probably have an idea of where I'm headed with this by this point. I made the choice to give them one more chance. It felt like the ideal time to give lathyrus another shot because I've always thought of them as lovely, delicate flowers.

Fresh-looking flowers in lovely hues

The lathyrus from that I tried have the cleanest appearance I have ever observed in these flowers, a wonderful perfume, and incredibly brilliant and vibrant colors, which are quite the reverse of what I've always believed of them. Additionally, lathyrus is a very adaptable flower with a fresh-from-the-garden appearance that works well in both bridal bouquets and opulent arrangements. I must say that lathyrus is a very amazing flower.

One week since getting the flowers, I'm writing this blog to let you know that it takes two days for the flowers to travel from The Netherlands to Romania. I've been admiring these magnificent lathyrus for a week, and since I maintain them at the ambient temperature, that implies they are nine days old. Wow!

Lathyrus during the Summer

You have no need to stress about getting them because Lathyrus is currently in high season and gathers roughly 200.000 stems per day. There are enough of these for florists across the world, whether you're one in Japan or the US. It's good to know that collects about 8 million stems annually, making these blooms accessible to consumers from mid-February through December in a wide range of hues.

It is safe to say that if you are a florist and normally steer clear of lathyrus, like I did, maybe it's time you give them another go so you can change your mind too.
