Google “wild lupins New Zealand” and you will find endless stunning images of these stunning blooms growing along Lake Tekapo, halfway between Christchurch and Queenstown. Bearing a strong resemblance to Delphiniums, these tall purple and pink flowers strongly resemble Delphiniums and they frame the main road to Queenstown and crawl all the way up the shoreline and sit just below the mountains in the distance.
The name of our new floral design, which we call “Fiji”, was inspired those gorgeous sky blue waters and pure white sands. But that’s only half the story. Two weeks ago we received an order for a bespoke arrangement featuring just-in-season Delphiniums. Alba, one of our senior designers, put together this exact arrangement which was to be delivered to the Epworth Freemasons hospital in East Melbourne. It was at the Epworth that this story really began.
