Water a Flower Day

Today marks Water A Flower Day, a day on which we… water flowers! The name of the day is simple enough but the subject matter is most certainly complex and intriguing! They’ve inspired us in many ways, you’ll even see plenty of flower themed products on our site including, fabrics, stickers, tapes and more. Here are some quirky, fun, and fascinating facts about flowers:

1) In Holland during the 17th century, tulip bulbs were actually more valuable than gold.

2) The Titan Arum can grow to heights of up to 3 meters. They’re also known as the Corpse Flower due to their terrible smell which will make anyone want to run away from them as fast as possible!

3) The Daisy was previously known as the ‘Day’s Eye’ because it resembled the sun. Over time, the name morphed a little bit, to Daisy.

4) In order to produce 1 gram of rose oil, approximately 2000 rose flowers are needed!

5) Bamboo flowers are quite rare, with some species of bamboo only sprouting flowers after 120 years!
