A roselily mono bouquet

This natural beauty gives you double the pleasure

Elegant and alluring, if there's one flower that doesn't need sidekicks to shine in a bouquet, it's the roselily! This lily gets its name from the fact that it resembles a large rose when its flowers open.

Not only does the roselily combine the beauty of two flowers into one stunning package, it also lasts well in a vase. And as it has no stamens, you don't have to worry about the flowers having a strong odor or shedding. In short, we can't recommend this flower enough!

Create a mono bouquet

Making a mono bouquet is simple. Keep an eye out for the roselily at your local florist, then choose as many flowers as you want and take them home with you. Embrace your inner floral artist, follow the care tips below and arrange the flowers in your prettiest vase.

Care tips

At home with your new flowers? You'll want them to last as long as possible, of course. Here are some tips to extend the vase life of your roselilies:

  • Make sure your vase is clean, fill it with cold water and add in cut flower food.

  • Cut the stems diagonally with a sharp knife.

  • Make sure there are no leaves drooping into the water, as they will rot.

  • Change the water regularly to prevent bacterial growth.

  • Do not place the vase in direct sunlight, near a heater, in a draft or near a fruit bowl.

Development

The Roselily is part of the lily family and is a fairly new flower variety. In 1997, a breeder discovered an anomaly in their Oriental lily crop: the stamens had formed into leaves. The breeder saw an opportunity for a new variety of lily and developed the flower further, until the first roselily came onto the market in 2011. Now, several varieties of this flower are available. 

Symbolism

The lily is full of symbolism. The flower symbolises femininity, love, purity and transience. As part of the lily family, the roselily shares all these symbolisms, but thanks to its name and beautiful appearance, these symbolisms carry extra weight. This flower is therefore perfectly suited to expressing your feelings, to dispelling your morning bad mood, or simply giving someone a smile. Would you prefer a mixed bouquet, combining the roselily with other flowers? Get inspired by this romantic bouquet.
