The femine and graceful blooms of Amarines are radiantly pink. However, ‘pink’ alone isn’t enough to do these gorgeous flowers justice. The fun and flirty Anastasia variety has a fuschia tint to it’s long petals. Paris’s petals are shaded, with magenta in the center and creamy blush pink on the side. And the pale delicate pink of Emmanuelle is very romantic, making it a perfect choice for a wedding arrangement.
Amarine’s large and generous blossoms will make you sit up and take notice when they enter the room. Long, ribbony petals speak of an accessible elegance that will add stylish exuberance to a room or really light up a special celebration. The shape of Amarine’s blossoms are halfway between a star and a trumpet. The blooms are lily-like, but distinctive enough to be in their own class.
Both festive and romantic, Amarines are a perfect choice for a chic wedding for a fashionable couple. A few Amarines in a wedding bouquet will imbue it with a powerful pink, but a bouquet where they are the star will draw eyes and not let go.
Amarines bring a touch of playful joy in an arrangement, but when presented on their own they can really take your breath away. A single Amarine in a vase will wow the viewer, and keeping in mind that they last up to two weeks with proper care, it’s a no-brainer that the Amarine will grow on you. These amazing flowers are available from late summer to fall.
