Melissa's Tips and Tricks - Although we love fresh flowers, building a faux floral “wardrobe” to pull from when you don’t have time or patience for fresh flowers can be a lifesaver.
We recommend starting with a dozen stems of your favorite floral pairings and a versatile vase you know is the right size, then build a collection of seasonal and occasional options. Choose your selection like the professionals do, a mix of fillers, thrillers and a few spillers.
It is a wonderful investment when your arrangement doesn’t turn out the way you expected and/or who hasn’t woken up to unexpectedly wilted flowers. We think they are also perfect for weekend homes or when you leave for a trip, always lovely to greet you and never deal with a dead arrangement and smelly water again.

DIMENSIONS: Flower head 6" wide, Stem 33" long
CARE & MAINTENANCE: We recommend avoiding direct sunlight as this can diminish the stems vibrance overtime.
Lightly dust regularly to keep looking fresh, refresh as needed by misting with water or flower spray cleaner.
For deep cleaning once a year or so we run a warm bath, then gently rinse or dip each stem in clear warm water. Lay on a bath towel to dry and your blooms will look like new.
FACTS & HISTORY: Some species of Agapanthus are commonly known as lily of the Nile, or African lily in the UK. However, they are not lilies and all of the species are native to Southern Africa (South Africa, Lesotho, Eswatini, Mozambique), though some have become naturalized in scattered places around the world (Australia, Great Britain, Mexico, Ethiopia, Jamaica, The Agapanthus' origin can be seen from its name. The Dutch East India Company brought the plants to the Netherlands from South Africa in the middle of the 17th century, like many other garden plants.
Thanks to colonial shipping by the East Indian Company, the Agapanthus also ended up in Europe in the second half of the seventeenth century. The first mention in European literature dates from 1679. The imported specimens were all from around the Cape of Good Hope and evergreen, often they were donated to botanical gardens with orangeries and greenhouses because they did not know whether they would survive in the new climate.
