A rose is a rose, but Stargazers are most aromatic
LOVIN HOSTS MONTHLY SIPS AND STEMS CLASSES
He loves me. He loves me not. Remember plucking petals off a flower until the last one gave the answer? No need to ask the flower. Just send someone an arrangement or bouquet and confirm the love.
The most aromatic flower one can send from a florist is a Stargazer Lily, according to Brandon Neisler, owner of Lovin Florist in downtown Lawrenceville.
Neisler, a Lawrenceville native and his husband, Caswell bought Lovin Florist right before the pandemic and then around Thanksgiving last year, they opened their second location near Chateau Elan at 2095 Georgia Highway 11 in Braselton.
“We’re going to be focusing on large-scale events and weddings out of that location,” Neisler said. “Our designer there is a nationally recognized designer and does beautiful work. She will be running that store. We will still do everyday work and funeral work.”
Neisler offers the following five tips on what he calls “flower health” to make flowers last longer:
1. Change your water every other day and give your stems a fresh cut.
2. Do not put them in a window or direct sunlight. We call it blow. They will be dead in three days.
3. Don’t put them directly underneath or above any heat source. The constant air will cause them to crisp up and die.
4. Don’t put Sprite and other stuff in your water; just clean fresh water.
5. Talk to them and enjoy them more. Love them and they’ll love you back.
“Flowers are there from beginning to end and everything in between,” Neisler said. “They don’t have to be used for any special occasion, but ‘just because,’ for a birthday, ‘I’m sorry’ and they can be a symbol of hope, peace and love.”
