Cymbidium Orchids

One of Springs most loved flowers is the Cymbidium Orchid. With large, beautiful, long-lasting blooms these local favourites always impress.

A stem or two in a vase can really add a touch of elegance to your home. Cymbidium Orchids are also one of the longest lasting cut flowers available. While their price may seem extravagant – around $30 for one stem! – they can last up to three weeks, sometimes even longer.

We do however have some inexpensive options – we can create a pretty box arrangement with the Cymbidium Orchids which start from $29.50

Bromeliad

The diversity of flowers within the bromeliad species is amazing. This is yet another that I would love to add to my collection.

Bromeliads flourish in a warm, shady position.

At Hanging Basket Florist we always have bromeliads for sale in a variety of containers – rustic seagrass baskets  and  hessian bags or in colourful boxes with cellophane for a brighter look. These hardy plants make a great gift.

More Submerged Orchids

Each week we do two large vase arrangements of Oriental Lilliums and tropical foliage for Pandora jewellers here in Rockingham, however this week they are having a special promotion and wanted to add a little puple to their usual Pandora look. I created the above Orchid Vases for them – Purple Dendrobium Orchids and Bamboo, semi-submerged in a glass vase with glass marbles.  I love the look so much I am adding the design to our website, I think it would make a great little gift to sit on someones office desk.

We also did individual wired Orchid blooms to match, which the girls wore in their hair. I would love to see ladies wearing flowers in their hair more often, I think it would look great on the girls going to their school ball with flowers in their hair to match their wrist sprays and corsages.

Salvation Army Rockingham

Last Sunday the Rockingham Salvation Army held a banquet to thank those in the community that have helped them. Hanging Basket Florist were pleased to be invited and to receive a Certificate of Appreciation. For many years we have been providing flowers for their chapel every Sunday, at the end of the service a deserving member of the congregation are given the flowers to take home.

It was a great day to meet others from the Rockingham community that support this wonderful group and their good work.
