Also known as sea-lavender, statice, or marsh-rosemary, the caspia is a floral variety that is available through the year and is unrelated to the above floral varieties despite its common names. Its botanical name limonium bellidfolium is derived from the Greek word leimon, which means meadow — where the caspia is commonly found. It is native to Europe and Asia, and is lovely to work with in a bouquet or centrepiece because it is hardy, dries well and creates movement and structure.
The caspia has a long vase life of up till 10 days and even without water, it dries well and maintains its original colour. Basic care includes changing the water in the vase and trimming its stems daily.
To dry this flower, just take it out of the water. You can either tie it up as a bunch or place it in a vase.
Single variety flowers come wrapped in brown paper with a water bag. This ensures sufficient hydration for the flowers so that they remain fresh between the time it is put together and when the recipient receives it.
Here are the number of stalks you will find in each size:
Standard — 15 stalks
Large — 25 stalks
The caspia is a tall-stemmed variety, ideal for entrance tables, console tables and bar top centrepieces.
