It’s the last month of the year and what a year it has been! Thanks for keeping us company this past year and we hope that you’ve enjoyed our flowers each month! For our December 2015 calendar, I wanted to choose a unique bloom that you don’t see too often: Star of Bethlehem.
This beautiful flower gets its common name from the cluster of star-shaped blooms on each stem. Its botanical name is ornithogalum which is definitely a mouthful to say, but you can show off your flower knowledge by using this name! There are many species of ornithogalum; the most common have white blooms, but you can also find yellow and orange colors. This particular variety in our calendar is called ornithogalum thyrsoides. It has a slender conical-shaped cluster of flowers that are so gorgeous when fully bloomed!
If you want to get some for your home, check out our Star of Bethlehem page or it’s also an option in our Holiday Flowers Custom Gift Set. The rest of this month, we’ll be sharing plenty of decorating and holiday gift ideas so stay tuned for more posts.
I know that this month is hectic for everyone with the holidays, but I hope you get to take a moment to rest and relax and relish in the beauty that life offers us. It’s been a wonderful year and we’re looking forward to a great 2016!
