Slow Flowers for Valentine’s Day

Slow Flowers are on trend for Valentine’s Day

Have you heard about Slow Flowers?  This movement is parallel to the Slow Food movement.  At the core of each is the celebration of food and flowers that are locally grown and seasonal.

Here is an interesting article/press release about the national trend towards using slow flowers to celebrate Valentine’s Day.  Instead of sending a dozen Roses from South America, think outside the box!  Consider an arrangement made from locally and domestically grown blooms – which can include greenhouse-grown Roses and Lilies from Oregon (like these pictured here) as well as lovely spring beauties like Ranunculus or Anemone from a Washington flower farm.

If you like the idea of sending Slow Flowers for Valentine’s Day, we’d love to help!   To order an arrangement, call 360.632.0686 or email us.

Locally grown Slow Flowers include Roses and Lily with silver and plum foliage

The flowers included in this arrangement include garden Roses and double Lilies from Oregon; Scabiosa, Queen Annes Lace and Acacia from California, and Dusty Miller, Garrya and Begonia from Washington farms and gardens.  They are arranged without the use of floral foam in a gold mercury-glass compote dish.
