Very seldom do you come across a Green Flower out in the open, so when you do, just know that it is your lucky day!
Not only are these breathtaking creatures rare to find, but they hold so much meaning, that people over the centuries have been associating them with great values of Hope, Prosperity, Health and Resilience.
Green Flowers add quite some character to your garden; as green is most commonly thought of as the color of the foliage and not the flower itself, coming across a flower with the same color adds a sense of intrigue, depth and mystery to your garden.
Below, I’ve compiled a list of the 6 most astounding naturally green flowers that you could get inspired from next time you want to do a garden makeover or simply want to create your own customized bouquet!
Rosa Green Flower (Chartreuse rose)
A classic, right? Except no. Red Roses are undoubtedly the most popular, usually the go-to bouquet to gift your beloved ones on Valentine’s Day or other special occasions.
But, truth be said, they are mainstream. That’s where Green Roses come in, they are so uncommon and unique that they could be used to impress the person you’re gifting, and, of course, as a token of love, hope, and optimism.
Green Carnation (Dianthus caryophyllus)
Carnations are pretty popular among flower enthusiasts. They come in different colors, one for every taste.
They are dainty little flowers with bright hues that can add so much liveliness to a bouquet.
Belonging to the same family as carnations, the greyish-green or blue-green dianthus flowers are modified cultivars.
Although this specie is more of a plant, rather than a flower, its round puff-ball like shape makes it a great option for bouquets – centrepieces and table arrangements in particular.
If you’re thinking of growing your own Dianthus, it could be useful to know that it’s hardy and could be grown as an annual, perennial or biennial.
Green Cymbidium Orchid
Orchids are an extremely popular choice of flowers, but did you know they also existed in green? Well, now you know! And guess what?
It’s a beautiful green flower that boasts an array of unusual shades, so if you’re looking for something a little different, it’s your go-to option!
The best part is, if you’re thinking to grow your own orchids, they can have up to 15 or more flowers per stem by the time they blossom in winter.
Bells of Ireland (Moluccela Laevis)
Quite contrary to its name, the flower actually originated in Turkey and not Ireland.
It is the number one choice for many garden connoisseurs because of its longevity and availability. It’s also said to stand for good luck.
Zinnia Green Flowers (Zinnia elegans)
It’s such a unique green flower, a favorite of many gardeners and flowers enthusiasts.
The flowers have daisy-like heads on a tall, slender stem, and they are available in an assortment of forms and sizes, which makes them happy looking, perfect for brightening up your living space.
