Waxflower - Fabulous February Flowers

When it comes to flowers there's no month quite like February.  Yes, I know what you're thinking.  Well of course, February 14th is Valentine's Day and everyone knows it's a big flower holiday.  That's true, but there's really much more to February than Valentine's Day. It's the month when we harvest our most extensive array of gorgeous flowers.  We see Protea, Banksia, Pincushion, flowering Leucadendron, Berzelia, blooming Grevillea and an amazing assortment of Waxflower, it's floral bliss - so much to choose from.

However, if I have to pick out a February Favorite I'd definitely say Waxflower wins my heart!  The season has just begun and the first varieties to be harvested are the Hybrid's with their large colorful blooms and crisp green foliage.  These gorgeous fillers have a lacy spring flair with a sweet scent and they mix with most any flowers and foliage.  However, more and more these days I'm starting to see them used in some very special ways and often featured all on their own - in floral crowns, boutunorniers, bouquets and simple vases.  Here's just a few examples of how these gorgeous clusters of blooms can make a sweet impression (photographers unknown).
