Flower of the Week

We’ve been busy little elves (as our customers like to call us) decorating for Christmas! We’re back in the shop for today and this week’s featured flower is: Star of Bethlehem
Star of Bethlehem can also be called Chincherinchee or Ornithogalum. It is available the whole year, but it is especially popular at Christmas because of its name, and the star shaped blooms. It can be white, yellow, or orange, but the most commonly seen color is white. The flowers are clustered on the top of a slender, leafless stem. They open slowly from the bottom of the cluster to the top. When the blooms at the bottom begin to wilt they should be removed from the stem to encourage the buds at the top to continue opening. Meaning: Purity, Reconcilliation, Atonement
