One of the most beautiful flowers of all time, which when fully open, rightly deserves the nickname “Magnificent Beauty," which was the meaning of this flower in the Victorian “Language of Flowers."
Care and Handling:
Inspect flowers carefully upon arrival checking that the stems are neither slimy nor limp. The flowers plump and well-hydrated and stems firm. Stems should be cut and the flowers hydrated in a low sugar holding solution. These flowers should preferably be processed in the cooler, and held at very low temperatures as they are cold weather crops.
