Available all year round, liatris is an unusual flower that combine beautifully with other flowers for both contemporary and exotic
wildflower floral arrangements. Liatris allows for great flexibility in floral arrangements due to its unique design. Rather than
blooming from the bottom of the spike to the top as most flowers do, liatris flowers open at the top first and bloom downward, which
gives off the impression of a delicate purple or lavender feather.
There are many creative ways to create modern and chic wedding arrangements using liatris flowers. Place a few tall lavender
liatris stems in an elegant, thin glass vase and put clear glass pebbles at the bottom of the vase, creating an illusion of flowers
on ice. Another idea is to surround vases of liatris stems with small white or vanilla scented tea lights. This will create a simple,
smart centerpiece for your wedding. Create a fuller look for your centerpiece by contrasting the irregularly shaped liatris stems
with dainty calla lilies. For a country-style centerpiece, combine liatrises with smaller flowers such as asters and alstroemerias.
Available in various shades of purple, liatris stems make a wonderful choice for spring and summer weddings with a multi-colored
scheme. One popular centerpiece arrangement is the combination of purple liatris with yellow flowers for a cheerful and bright
effect. Combine yellow pompoms and yellow lilies with a few stems of purple liatris to create a three level tier of brightly
colored flowers with varying heights and degrees of blooms. This arrangement also looks stunning in photographs.
For color purists who prefer one shade of flower, liatris also combines well with other purple flowers. Combine several liatris
stems with, chrysanthemums, statice, and hydrangeas to form a single purple sensation. This combination also goes well with
bridesmaids’ dresses with colors that contain any shade of purple from eggplant to wine.
Liatris is a versatile, unusually shaped flower that bring a look of distinction to wedding bouquets, centerpieces and ceremonies.
Liatris stems have a natural rigidity that makes them easy to work with, making them perfect for both professional florists and
do-it-yourself flower arrangers. And, because liatris flowers are known for their longevity, they are an ideal option for those
looking to enjoy their arrangements even after the wedding is over.
