That's the spirit of autumn, with its soothing aroma-filled ambiance and its crisp mornings and cozy nights. Yet amid all the transformation, we tend to overlook the beauty and exquisite nature of flowers that still and always give a colorful look to your indoor space.

Combine Marginpar's commitment to the creation of unique flowers with the trendy creativity of BLOOM's and you will get an inspiring and stylish masterpiece. Floral autumn is a possibility, not only with the wide array of available fall flowers but the quality and elegance of Jatropha Firecracker.

The Jatropha Firecracker does have quite an unusual appearance. It's a kind of weird cut flower with a coral-like appearance and striking flamy colors. You might even wonder how on earth does this coral grow on land? But it does, and it's name is Jatropha. The Firecracker variety is grown and available year-round in Tanzania by Marginpar.

German-based floral professional agency and media company BLOOM's went all in with the floral design and staging of Jatropha's floral autumn fire. The incorporation of different design elements and facets brought the elegance of the flower to the limelight in the most exquisite yet intriguing manner. Here is a review of their amazing designs to give you that floral autumn fire vibe.

Tables Decorations Meet the Fire of Color

Branches of red Cornus crisscross each other like flickering flames. The narrowly chosen color spectrum of orange and red tones makes the floral part of the table arrangement particularly striking. An elongated wooden vessel with fresh flower foam serves as the base for the branches and florals.

The addition of candlelights gives the design a well-balanced lighting allowing the magic of Jatropha Firecracker to come to life. The result is the perfect table decorations, luxurious, stylish, and inviting.

The full menu consists of Astrantia Star of Love, Daucus Carota Dara, Jatropha Firecracker, Scabiosa Dark Cherry Scoop, Cornus Alba Sibirica, Cucurbita pepo, and red pepper.

Exorbitant Room Decoration

The interplay between the size of the frame and the richly textured materials creates an overwhelming room decoration. Lianas and fruiting stems are attached to the metal frame using fabric strips and convey a mystical atmosphere. The florals, some of which are exotic, are inserted into glass tubes that are fixed to the various pieces of wood with vine twine.

The exorbitant room design does not outrightly declare the fire and beauty of this Jatropha but even when being concealed, the flower's sleekness and presence are visible to the right and perfect degree.

The flowers and greens accompanying Jatropa in this design are Crocosmia Prince of Orange, Elaeis guineensis, Fallopia japonica, Miscanthus White Cloud, Scabiosa Dark Cherry Scoop, Anthurium andraeanum, Aralia, Fagus sylvatica, Phoenix Roebelenii, and the dried lianas.

Marginpar cultivates Jatropha Firecracker as a cut flower with a length of 35 to 45 cm. The flowers of the succulent plant on the thick-fleshed stem appear even before the leaves are formed. The trivial name bottle plant is due to its bottle-shaped stem. Grown in one of its farms in Tanzania, Marginpar reckons that Jatropha needs heat to achieve the desired length.
