SOMBREO

Oriental Lilies, Alstroemeria, Lisianthus and Solidago

What to Expect

Please give a warm welcome to The Sombreo! She's a beautiful assortment of Oriental Lilies, Alstroemeria, Lisianthus and Solidago

In the Box

Our flowers will be laid out head to tail, carefully remove your stems from the box and trim at least ¼ of an inch off the bottom of each stem to help rehydrate them. Your blooms may look a little sad, but they will perk right up once they are put in water.

In the Vase

Fill a nice clean vase with room temperature water and add one pack of flower food before you get started. Remember there is no wrong way to arrange flowers as long as you have fun, but if you get stuck while arranging you can always check out our video below.

In Bloom

This firework of colour is one of our favourites. Make sure you keep the water clean and plentiful throughout the week to make your flowers last as long as possible. Your Oriental lilies and alstroemeria will need a few days to open up so just sit back, relax, and watch the blooming happen!

Tips and Tricks

When your flowers arrive they may look a little tired, but fear not, they will perk right up once they have some water!

Cut all of your stems at a 45 degree angle and trim off the leaves below the water line.

Be sure to add your flower food, it makes a world of difference!

After 3-4 days, recut your stems, change the water and add the second pack of flower food.

Some of your flowers may last longer than others, freshen up the arrangement by pruning the spent stems.
