Tropique | Vela Flowers



November 01, 2016 0 Comments

We're very excited to bring you Tropique, the very first Vela seasonal choice.
Given that the seasons are changing we're launching with a special pop of colour to brighten up those wintery days.
In Meet the Blooms we go behind the scenes to take a closer look at the flowers that make up your bouquet.

From the Alliaceae family, the name allium is the Latin word for garlic. Most alliums have a distinctive balloon shaped flower head, giving a hint of firework theatricals, they're perfect for November.
Thought to be native to the Mediterranean region, Carnations have been popular and extensively cultivated for the last 2,000 years.
Pink carnations are a symbol of a mothers love, and at the University of Oxford, carnations are traditionally worn to all examinations; white for the first exam, pink for exams in between, and red for the last exam.

Alstroemeria is named after the Swedish botanist Klas von Alstroemer, who was a pupil of a great botanical classifier.
Mainly from the cool, mountainous regions in the Andes, Alstromeria is symbolic of wealth, prosperity and fortune. It is also the flower of friendship, making it the perfect gift.

With a colour that zings, the Shamrock works brilliantly with soft and rich purples in the Tropique.

We use the young leaves of this famed plant, native to Australia, and whose derived essential oil has a wide range of health benefits including its ability to boost respiratory health, strengthen the immune system, protect skin health, ease tension and anxiety, lower blood sugar, eliminate inflammation, and fight against bacterial infection.

A beautiful, airy grass which forms great puffs of green amongst your bouquet, and gives a little hark back to breezy summers days in fields of lush grass.
