Ah spring . . . It’s just around the corner, and we here at Bagoy’s Florist & Home are ready to welcome it with open arms. But it’s not just the season’s flowers we’re beholding, it’s their scent. We like to remember that the experience of fresh flowers is more than just what we see; they appeal to all of our senses equally. And while it’s true that not every flower is created equally when it comes to fragrance, each one does have a distinct smell of freshness. Today we look to one of the most fragrant flowers of the bunch.
The stargazer or Oriental lily is one of the most profoundly scented flowers you can get. When it’s growing in a garden it casts its aroma across the bed, through the yard, down even into the street. When it’s cut and mixed into an arrangement, it’s just as scented. And while we may focus on the obvious with this flower—which would be the fact that it explodes with color and petals that stretch ever outward—that scent commands just as much attention.
For both a punch of color and fragrance, stargazers are your best bet. You can find a beautiful mixed design that just makes use of one or two or choose one that centers around the bloom, giving it the starring role it clamors for.
