Brunia

Brunia is native to South Africa. Like some Australian native flora the flowers store seeds which are released when the plant dies in a fire.

These fascinating flowers flowers look great in a bouquet with groups of other large-form flowers like gerberas and lilliums and are well suited to modern floral designs.

Easter Arrangement
Easter Arrangement

The wild weather in Perth early last week heralded the change of seasons to the cooler weather of autumn – and with it a change in flower availability. While we are saying goodbye to Lisianthus, one of my favourite flowers with their colour palette of pinks, purples and creams, we can say hello to the first locally grown Tulips of the year.

While the cooler, wetter weather has lead to a slight decline in weddings until spring, we are expecting to be quite busy next weekend with Easter as Hanging Basket Florist is the only florist in Rockingham to be open and offering delivery on Easter Sunday. If you haven’t already registered on our website, do so now to receive a discount for Easter delivery.

Also at Easter we will be delivering a van full of red and white carnations to the Serbian Orthodox Church in Highgate – a job we have been doing for over ten years. While this is clearly well outside our usual service area the lady who orders the flowers is one of our biggest fans and won’t trust anyone else. So Easter is promising to be a busy long weekend.
