A delicate beauty first discovered high in the Andes of Brazil and Chile, Alstroemeria was first introduced to delighted European flower lovers in the 18th century. Today, it is more popular than ever, and it’s the subject of the latest FLORALIFE® Care and Handling article in the October edition of LivRio!
At Floralife, we like to describe our contribution to the global floriculture industry with the phrase “Follow the Flowers.” The path from the farm to the home is long and full of hazards for the delicate flower, and Floralife products attempt to address each of them. It’s a big job! How big? To appreciate the global scope of Following the Flowers, it helps to also “Follow the Income.”
Ranunculus – for a flower so pretty, its name certainly stumbles across the tongue, doesn’t it? Apparently, these affordable, long lasting blooms take their name from the Latin word for Little Frog, perhaps named for the many varieties that flourish near water. Ranunculus care and handling is the topic of the latest Floralife article in July’s LivRio Magazine!
