Exotic Flowers - Flowers with a Twist!

Apr 11, 2008
Exotic flowers are becoming more and more in demand today. Unlike other flowers, they can be preserved for up to three weeks if given the right care and attention. Exotic flowers are to be found in forests and mountains and can therefore be more expensive than other kinds of flowers.

Also, as the name suggest, they are not as common as the more traditional flowers like the roses, daisies or sunflowers. Indeed, when we think of exotic flowers, we imagine a burst of brilliant, vibrant colors that radiate everywhere. The exotic flower arrangement is all that and much more.

Perhaps one of the most impressive exotic flowers is the bird of paradise. This beautiful flower is a native of South Africa, but can no be found all over the world because of its exotic beauty. The bird of paradise stands about two meters tall and is really used for decorative purposes. It was named so because it is similar to the bird species that shares its name. The stems of the bird of paradise are thought to resemble the beak and head of a bird.

We often see them printed in shirts, but shirts don't do Hawaiian flowers any justice. Use the Hawaiian flowers to give your home a tropical, carefree summer appeal. Some common Hawaiian flowers are the Hawaiian lava plant, the bromeliad and the anthurium lava plants. All of them possess vibrant colors that can surely brighten up any home. The anthurium plants also have a heart-shaped flower that gives your home an even more unique look.

Orchids are considered one of, if not, the most beautiful of all exotic flowers. They are also very easy to grow and they can last for week, even months. There are also many, as many as a thousand, different varieties of orchids to choose from!

Exotic flowers can go together with other exotic flowers. Some arrangement can include the anthurium and lilies arrangement. This sort of arrangement recalls to mind the relaxing feel of the tropics with its vivacious, magnificent hues. To make it even livelier, add a touch of ginger flowers to this arrangement. Speaking of ginger, ginger along with protea is another option for exotic flower arrangement.

The pink colored ginger flowers as well as the Queen Protea flowers spread calm and tranquillity wherever they go. Should you go for this type of exotic flower arrangement, it will be a good idea to place this in a drawing room or in a living room to add a touch of beauty, as well as serenity, to the area.

If you like orchids, try pairing them with the anthurium. The exotic flower combination of dendrobium orchids and anthuriums also takes you back to the tropical islands, with lush forests, beaches and sunsets. The vibrant hues of these flowers will certainly add beauty to your living area.

Indeed, these flowers are so beautiful they are guaranteed to be prime conversation pieces. Just a touch of these exotic flowers in your living room, dining room, even your bedroom can help invigorate your home and give it the additional oomph that it needs!
