old world charm
A trip to the markets last week yielded some amazing phalaenopsis orchids and some very lush, romantic Pieris...the tree with old world charm and a tonne of romance. Also known as Andromeda, it is an eternal favourite in the flower world for its display of weeping bells and lush green leaves. Carefully arranged, a bridal bouquet can be fashioned entirely from the Pieris shrub, and will display an old world, 'freshly gathered', romantic shape.
