Top 5 Easter Flowers
The word Chrysanthemum is derived from the Greek word ‘chrys’ meaning golden & ‘anthemion’ meaning flower. The original colour was golden, and hence the name chrysanthemum. These flowers in most cultures are given for comfort, during grief and bereavement. They are also the perfect flower choice for Easter. They have a long vase life and can last for weeks if cared for, and are not very expensive, which make them a popular choice in Kenya. When selecting for Easter, white & yellow chrysanthemums can make the perfect arrangement for your dining table. You can also add in some baby’s breath.


2. Carnations-

Having the scientific name Dianthus caryophyllus, translated as the ‘flower of love’ or ‘flower of the gods’, carnations are a meaningful flower choice. They’re one of the world’s oldest cultivated flowers and in Kenya are available year-round, having a long vase life (up to 3 weeks). They’re preferred for their ruffled appearance and clove-like pleasant scent, as well as the extended vase life. Just like roses, they come in various colours & in Kenya they come in 2 types, the standard and spray carnation. They’re great value for their money and a popular choice for Easter. A simple vase full of carnations can light up your Easter table & add a relaxed feel. You can also make a mixed arrangement with baby’s breath to spruce up your arrangement.
