Hello, Bloomies!

Admit it, we all love flowers, but can you name these 10 rare flowers that confirm you haven't heard of (maybe)? Don't worry, we’re here to teach you more about these handsome, sophisticated, beautiful, and probably every other adjective you can think of, flowers.

From the stunning Anthurium to the dreamy Ranunculus, we'll give you the lowdown on these flowers that will make you go wahhhh. Get ready to impress your friends with your newfound knowledge of flowers, and who knows, maybe your crush (or partner!) will be moved by your newfound flower power!



Anthurium is not your average-looking flower. With its heart-shaped, waxy leaves and a vibrant, often red or pink spiky spadix that extends from its centre, it's no wonder it's nicknamed the "Flamingo Flower". But did you know that the anthurium is native to the tropical rainforests of Central and South America, and is not just a pretty face?

The anthurium plant is also known for its air-purifying qualities, making it a great addition to any indoor space. Plus, its unique shape and colour make it a popular choice for tropical-themed weddings and events.

If you're looking for a flower that's both beautiful and beneficial, the anthurium is the way to go. And lucky for you, we have a wide selection of anthurium arrangements that will brighten up any space and bring a touch of the tropics to your doorstep.



Matthiola, also known as the "stock," is not only beautiful but also a little bit mysterious. This flower is known for its fragrance. In ancient times, the scent of the matthiola was believed to have healing powers and was used as a natural remedy for headaches and insomnia.

With its unique scent and stunning appearance, adding matthiola to your flower arrangement is sure to add a touch of mystery and allure.



Caspia may not be a name that you've heard before, but trust us, this flower is worth getting to know. With its fluffy, cloud-like blooms, Caspia is a perfect addition to any bouquet or floral arrangement. Not to mention, it comes in a range of colours, including pink, blue, and purple, making it a versatile flower that can fit any occasion.

But did you know that Caspia is also known as "seafoam statice"? That's right! This little flower is often used in beach-themed floral arrangements, adding a touch of the ocean to any bouquet.

And while it may be small in size, Caspia is big on meaning. This flower symbolizes remembrance, making it a perfect gift for a friend or loved one to show that you're always thinking of them. So why not brighten someone's day with a stunning bouquet featuring Caspia? They're sure to appreciate the thought and effort put into such a unique and meaningful gift.



Tanacetum, also known as feverfew, is not just any ordinary flower. This little herbaceous perennial is actually used for medicinal purposes! Its leaves contain chemicals that can help alleviate headaches and migraines.

But don't let its practical use fool you - tanacetum's small, daisy-like flowers come in vibrant shades of white, yellow, and even pink, making it a fun addition to any bouquet or garden. And who knows, maybe keeping a few tanacetum plants around will help ward off any future migraines too!



Looking for a unique and rare flower that will make your friends "bug" out? Spidermums are the perfect pick! These vibrant blooms get their name from their long, spindly petals that resemble spider legs. Despite their creepy-crawly nickname, spidermums are anything but scary.

They come in a wide variety of colours, from soft pastels to bold brights, and add a touch of whimsy to any bouquet. Plus, they're known for their longevity, making them a perfect choice for special occasions that you want to remember for a long time. So go ahead, let these spider-like flowers weave their magic in your next arrangement!



Erygium is also known as sea holly, Eryngium's spiky, thistle-like blooms come in a variety of hues, from blue to green to silver. These unique flowers are popular in dried arrangements and add a touch of wild, natural beauty to any bouquet.

Fun fact: Eryngium has been used for medicinal purposes for centuries and was once believed to have magical properties. Oh, and similarly to baby’s breath flowers, they’re often used as fillers - they dry perfectly.



With its delicate, lily-like blooms and vibrant colours, Alstroemeria is a popular choice for bouquets and arrangements. Also known as the Peruvian lily, it's native to South America and comes in a wide range of shades, from soft pastels to bright, bold hues.

Fun fact: Alstroemeria is known for its long-lasting blooms and can stay fresh for up to two weeks in a vase.



Craspedia, also known as Billy Balls, are small, globe-shaped flowers that are sure to add a playful touch to any bouquet. With their bright yellow colour and distinctive texture, they're a popular choice for modern and minimalist arrangements.

Fun fact: Craspedia is native to Australia and is commonly used in traditional Aboriginal medicine.



Agapanthus, also known as the African Lily, is a true showstopper. Its blooms can range from deep blues to pure whites, with each flower resembling a tiny starburst. Fun fact: Agapanthus symbolizes love, which makes it the perfect flower for weddings and romantic occasions.

Legend has it that if you give an Agapanthus to someone, you are giving them the gift of love and eternal devotion. With its striking beauty and rich symbolism, it's no wonder why the Agapanthus is a favorite among florists and flower enthusiasts alike.



Ranunculus, also known as Persian Buttercup, is a charming flower that comes in an array of vibrant colours, including white, yellow, pink, orange, and red. Its delicate petals and bright hues make it a popular choice for wedding bouquets and floral arrangements.
