Nerineblooms as a cluster of flowers, each in a trumpet shape, on a leafless stem. They come in a wide spectrum of pink hues, from a bright fuchsia shade to a pale blush pink. Nerines can also be found in white, reddish orange and deep red.
Also known as Aster, they come in many sizes and colours. Petals are white, blue, deep purple or pink, and the central disks are a golden yellow.
Lisianthus have a soft, feminine look and are very long-lasting. Many people admire them, but don't know their name, and are commonly mistaken as varieties for roses and peonies. Lisianthus can be found in white, various shades of pink, lavender, deep purple, and bi-colours such as blue-violet.
Their historic interest, colour, scent and form make antique roses a classic choice for weddings. Antique rose colours tend to be more muted and pastel than modern hybrids.
These are commonly known as 'Moth orchids', as they are said to look similar to that of a flying moth. But don't let their nickname put you off, as they are extremely elegant and luxurious at weddings! Each stem can have up to 15 flowers on it and typically the flowers are flat and oval-shaped with a slight waxy appearance. They come in a vast variety of colours including white, pink, yellow and purple and include plain, spotted and striped versions.
The Dahlia is a daisy-like flower, made up of numerous delicate petals, and comes in beautiful bright, vibrant colours as well as pastels and white.
The Alstromeria flower is commonly referred to by one of three nicknames – the Parrot Lily, Peruvian Lily or Lily of the Incas. Colours range from pinks and reds to whites and yellows and the petals often boast striking markings.
