Spotlight on Mimosa
Mimosa is such a bright and cheerful bloom! Its peak season is February - March which makes it an excellent choice when adding a pop of colour to late winter and early spring floral designs. Mimosa makes a great 'filler' flower for bouquets and adds a touch of the wild to more structured designs. It also looks fabulous on its own in glass vases dotted around the house, the bright yellow really adds a beautiful touch to the house during winter months.
International Women's day fall on 8th March and Mimosa is typically handed out to women in Italy and other countries on this day.
If given in small bunches Mimosa has come to symbolize sensitivity and is a gesture of mourning and sympathy. Mimosa is also often associated with friendship, and is wonderful to give to someone as a little gift during the darker winter days in February. In France the yellow bloom is often linked with positivity and good luck.
Mimosa can be associated with expansion and personal growth, so if you are thinking of changing something big in your life then scattering your house with little bunches of mimosa is a nice way of symbolizing the big changes happening around you.
Overall, the Mimosa is a positive, tactile and pretty flower. It makes a wonderful addition to spring bridal designs.
Mimosa looks lovely arranged with other seasonal flowers such as tulips and Narcissi, and is a welcome addition of colour during the last winter months.
