Flowers Valentine

Whether you're a fan or not, Valentine's Day wouldn't really be complete without the addition of gypsophila. For years, gyp has been on the list of the 10 most popular cut flowers. Just take a closer look at the Gypsophila Xlence® from Danziger and you will immediately understand why.

Gypsophila Xlence® - The Most Romantic Gyp Out There 

The gypsophila family consists of approximately 80 species and is closely related to the family of dianthus. Gypsophila initially grew in dry-dripping places along river borders and water puddles. In the wild, you can still admire this flower in parts of Eurasia, Africa, Australia, and the Pacific Islands. Turkey has a particularly high diversity of gypsophila taxa, with about 35 endemic species.

The genus name is derived from the Greek words 'gypsos' (meaning 'gypsum') and 'philios' (meaning 'loving') - a reference to the gypsum-rich substrates on which some species grow. Gypsophila is often better known as baby's breath, or babe's breath, a name which also refers specifically to the well-known cut flower species Gypsophila paniculata.

Danzinger's Gypsophila Xlence Collection

Danziger’s Xlence® collection shows just how big love can be. This variety features blooms that range between 10 to 13 mm in size. The flowers are pure, brilliant white, and perfectly ball-shaped. Big. Bountiful. Beautiful. They are the perfect pair for larger roses, creating an impressive arrangement.
