Gets its name from the Greek word for meadow
Of Mediterranean origin, limonium--commonly called statice--gets its name from the Greek word for "meadow," and belongs to the Plumbaginaceae family. Now grown internationally in a range of colors, textures and weights, limonium is a popular, hardy filler flower that's used in both fresh and dried bouquets.
Has a generous vase life of 1-2 weeks in water.
Care and Handling
A hardy cut flower, limonium requires only basic care. Process flowers by cutting an inch off stems under water and placing them in clean containers filled with a properly prepared flower food solution.
Thanks to the range of colors and textures available--from the lacy 'Misty' varieties to the heavy-tufted, papery L. sinuatum--limonium is an attractive filler in both traditional and garden-style arrangements. Limonium makes a perfect filler for wreathes or fresh-to-dried "keepsake" arrangements due to its ease in drying.
Colors: White, pink, rose, yellow, apricot, peach, lavender, blue, red, carmine and purple.
