November 30th, 2018


Classic cut Flowers.

Hypericum%2Bberries.jpgMercede's definition of a bouquet of classic cut flowers is 'high end' cut flowers.

Think Ms Hydrangea, Ms Stephanotis,Mr Tuber Rose.

It's not just flowers though, there are berries that are incorporated into a bunch of classic flowers.

Try Ms Hypericumred or green berries. Hypericum androsaemum, also referred to as Tutsan, Shrubby St. John’s Wort , or sweet-amber, is a flowering plant in the family Hypericaceae. It is a perennial shrub reaching up to 70 cm in height, native to open woods and hillsides.

Also suitable are Ms Crab -Apple. Some florists say the perfect bouquet consists of crabapple, pepperberries and red/orange roses. 

How to treat Ms Hypericum:


  • Slit the woody ends and then soak them in a bucket of warm water for 3 to 4 hours so they can absorb as much moisture as possible. Strip off any leaves that will be under the water level in their container, fill it up with more water and place them in a cool, dimly lit room until the buds swell and begin to show color. 


Ms Stephanotis is a high end cut flower.
