ADMIRABLE ALSTROEMERIA FLORINCA IN OUR FLOWER PITCH

Fiery bright colours, lost of beautiful flowers per stem and a long lasting vase life, the Alstroemeria Florinca has it all! To let everybody in our office enjoy these admirable flowers we presented them in our Flower Pitch. In cooperation with our partner Together2Grow we created a floral explosion at our office:

SPRING COLOURS OF THE FLORINCA

The Florinca is a special variety of the Alstroemeria family. Unlike a normal Alstroemeria the Florinca is a spray flower. Several branches with many flowers per stem that spread gracefully, the Florinca is truly a unique flower.

Each variety is different therefore we listed the specialties of each variety below:

  • Alstroemeria Noa
    Noa is the newest Florinca variety there is! With her many ramifications, intense cerise colour and dark leaves she is a significant extra addition.
    Fun fact: This flower is named after the daughter of the grower.
  • Alstroemeria Fireflies
    Fireflies is a very rare variety, because at the moment it is the only yellow Florinca there is. The deep yellow colour and many small flowers create a playful effect.
  • Alstroemeria Dynamite
    This bright and strong red variation of the family was the first red edition. The fiery yellow accents will make it stand out.

Even within the Florinca family, there are special varieties for example the Charmelia. The soft tones of the Charmelia varieties make them a perfect option for the wedding season:

  • Charmelia Pink
    This beautiful pink colour is the winner of the Glass Tulip Award in 2015. Which means it was the most striking and successful market introduction in that year. Charmelia Pink is still one of Florincas with the longest ramifications and biggest flowers.
  • Charmelia White
    The luminous white colour can be used in any wedding-bouquet or just for adding some elegance in your arrangement.
  • Charmelia Blush
    This flower is a delicate combination of two colours, a softer white and a glowing red. When you give this to someone special, it most definitely will make them blush ;).

THREE ADVANTAGES OF THE ALSTROEMERIA FLORINCA

Not only is this variety of the Alstroemeria family unique, it is also comes with many advantages:

  1. EASY TO USE
    When using a spray flower you don’t need many stems of the Florinca to create a full mono bunch or a beautiful mixed bouquet.
  2. LONG VASE LIFE
    Interesting in that these varieties don’t produces any type of pollen. As a result the flowers will not fall out quickly and enjoys a long vase life.
  3. POLLEN-FREE!!
    Thanks to the fact that the Alstroemeria Florinca is pollen free, it is practical for everyone. People who are allergic can also enjoy this admirable
