Ask the Expert:What flowers goes best with amaryllis?
I am getting married in February, I wanted a bouquet of amaryllis (white I think) and I would like to know what other flower or flowers would go well with them, thank you Dilaila
Our Expert's Answer:
White amaryllis are certainly beautiful flowers.
I have seen a wedding bouquet with white amaryllis and tulips which was designed by Seattle Flowers. This hand-tied bouquet used a beautiful satin ribbon embellished with pearls.
Keep in mind amaryllis stems are very thick and a hand-tied bouquet is most likely the only option...
QUICK FLOWER CARE TIP We all know plants need water and sunshine right? Well, growing plants require sunshine, but sitting a fresh flower arrangement in front of a hot, sunny window can shorten the life of your arrangement! It's best to keep bouquets in a cool place away from heat sources.
