Alstroemeria: flower of friendship

EA_Article_Friendship

Friendship is one of the most valuable bonds we can have in our lives. It is a source of happiness, support and unconditional love. July 30 is International Friendship Day and we celebrate these precious relationships. But did you also know that there is a flower that perfectly reflects the essence of friendship? The Alstroemeria, also known as the lily of the Incas, carries a profound symbolism closely linked to the true meaning of friendship. In this article, we will tell you more about the meaning of this beautiful flower and discover how it is the perfect companion for your clients to celebrate Friendship Day.


Meaning of the petals

Did you know that the flower of each Alstroemeria consists of six petals? These petals each represent a special characteristic:

  • Compassion
  • Patience
  • Concept
  • Humor
  • Decisiveness
  • Respect


All of these characteristics combine to symbolize a long-lasting friendship. This beautiful symbolism along with the long vase life of our Alstroemerias make this the ultimate flower to affirm your friendship with. 

For every type of friendship

Every friendship is different. Did you know that the versatile availability of our Alstroemeria allows you to create a suitable bouquet for each? For example, for an exuberant friendship, you can make a large monobos of Alstroemeria. You can also convey a sweet message with a single branch in a specially selected vase. Our favorite is an arrangement containing six different colors of Alstroemeria; each color then symbolizes each special characteristic, which together symbolize long-lasting friendship.

Synchronous enjoyment

To add extra strength to the friendship, encourage your customers to buy two of the same bunches. One to give away to your friend and one to keep for yourself! Because of the long endurance of our Alstroemeria you offer your customers the chance to enjoy the flowers extra long together and in sync. We can't think of a better way to celebrate friendship. 

Tip

Customers appreciate it when you have a nice story to tell with your flowers. Therefore, in July, position the Alstroemeria in the store as the flower of friendship. Introduce them to the special qualities the petals symbolize by placing a beautiful bunch of Alstroemeria on the counter as well.
