When one of the very first spring sunbeams has arrived, the Agapanthus is already eager to join the other spring flowers in a beautiful spring bouquet.

This "something blue" not only completes a wedding party, but also your bouquet of flowers for your home. Which shade of blue do you choose?



Agapanthus is recognizable by its elongated leaves and its long stem that ends in a beautiful ball of small flowers. This gradually spreads the spring in your house piece by piece. There are more than hundreds of varieties, so plenty of choice. You can actually say you're spoiled for choice. Did you know that the Agapanthus is also available in white, but with so many different shades you can hardly ignore the intense blue color. Especially because the color blue is quite a special phenomenon in the world of flowers.


Tip! If you don't want to just put the flower in a vase? Then dry the Agapanthus roots, make a necklace and wear it in a necklace around your neck and get married.

  • Cut the flower stems diagonally.
  • Put the flowers in clean water in a clean vase.
  • Add cut flower food to the water for a longer shelf life.
  • Do not place the vase in full sun, in a draft or next to the fruit bowl.
