Bells Flowers Arrangements

The apple green color and name, “ Bells of Ireland”, certainly suggest that this plant comes for Ireland but it doesn’t. It is an annual native of Turkey, Syria, and the Caucasus and has been cultivated since the sixteenth century. Peak supplies are from June to October but stems are available all year long so they can be used in St. Patrick Day arrangements where they will make a smashing impact.

Bells of Ireland are a member of the mint family and so are related to Coleus, Swedish Ivy, Salvias, Basil, Lavender, and, of course, Mint. Like the other members of the family, Bells of Ireland have square hallow stems. The green bell shaped structures that appear to be flowers are actually calyces surrounding small inconspicuous white or pink flowers. The stems have small thorns that can cause allergic reactions or rashes and the leaves are prickly.

Bells of Ireland do well in a variety of arrangements. They provide a strong vertical accent in large arrangements and are striking in all-foliage designs or contemporary designs. Floral clusters can be cut from the stems and made into garlands or used in Euro-style designs and basing techniques. In the language of flowers, Bells of Ireland represent luck and can be used to send a message in a bouquet. Stems are also suitable for drying. After removing the leaves and thorns hang them upside down in a cool, dark, airy location.

I have seen it all before.
Tontite will have the doors ajar with the moon poking holes into paper tigers.
Seperate lives will mark out where and what.
Clicking clock of the mantle takes the sounds of flames as a dance of the seconds between ladder and bell.
She was always on fire attire. wearing out the only way in.
Puting on blaze orange with crimson lips that stick to the fine china goblet.
Wine will carry her conversation between the white teeth and blue wall.
Flickering lamp for old dust books will illuminate the big words that need to be found shortened
