But now, without further ado, three beautiful dried flowers that your customers will love. And not just because they go very well in fall-themed bouquets and other arrangements.
They each offer a sense of timeliness and immortality. One was used by a famous hero to cure his battle wounds, another has a long history of battling the effects of aging whilst the last one on this list was actually regarded as a symbol of immortality.
Achillea dried flowers
First on our list, is Achillea. Long stems and rich, flat clusters of tiny flowers make this an ideal flower for adding some height to your bouquet.
About the Achillea flower
Achillea was named after the Greek hero Achilles, because his soldiers were said to use the flower to treat their wounds. Other names for Achillea also derive from this story, like “Allheal” or “Bloodwort”.
Achillea Dried varieties
In our webshop, you’ll find a variety of different colors, ranging from lime green and orange to fuchsia and yellow. No matter the color of your arrangement, Achillea got you covered.
Next up: Helichrysum, a genus of flowers that originates from the Mediterranean. Owing to its characteristic smell, Helichrysum is also known as the Curry Plant.
Varieties and Availability
Helichrysum Immortelle is our most popular variety, available in a wide range of colors. Orange, Lavender, Bleached or Yellow: Helichrysum is there for you if you’re looking to add some color to your floral arrangement.
Helichrysum essential oil
Helichrysum has a rich history in traditional medicine. Oil from the Helichrysum plant – which can be found in all green parts of the plant – is used to treat skin deficits, such as blemishes, wrinkles, and inflammation. Dried Helichrysum flowers are being used in traditional medicine as well. As of yet, little research has been carried out on its effectiveness. But you can be sure that dried Helichrysum will lend a nice touch – and smell – to any bouquet, and brighten your day.
The Amaranthus flower is recognizable by its rope-like flowers. They are available in an upright, or hanging variety. Thanks to their long, slender clusters of flowers, they are perfect for adding some lushness to your wedding bouquet or arch.
About the Amaranthus Flower
Other common names for the Amaranthus flower include Amaranth, Tampala, Tassel Flower, Flaming Fountain, Fountain Plant, Joseph’s Coat, Love-lies-bleeding, Molten Flower and Prince’s Feather.
Because it retains its freshness for a long time, the ancient Greeks regarded Amaranthus as a symbol of immortality. Amaranthus flowers were therefore often spread over Greek graves. How suitable, that Amaranthus has become one of our favorite dried and preserved flowers, making Amaranthus (almost) immortal indeed.
Amaranthus Dried varieties and colors
In our webshop, you’ll find multiple colors of hanging Amaranthus, where the flowers are cascading downwards like the branches of a weeping willow. For better preservation, these varieties are being specially handled to maintain a more natural look and feel than would be achieved by just drying.
Amaranthus Hang is an excellent addition to your fall or Holiday bouquet. We also think it’s a nice alternative for decorating your doorpost if you’re not looking for the side-effects that come with Mistletoe.
The upright variety comes mostly in green and is a great addition to other fall flowers.
