Exclusively for Everybody

Extraordinary Journey

Odilia's passion for these extraordinary flowers is taking the sourcing team around the world to discover new varieties, explore cool places, and meet great people. They’d love to invite you to come with us and experience the nature of extraordinary flowers for yourself. Starting with just a few examples of flowers from the World of Odilia...

Cape Greens

Extraordinary doesn’t always mean all out. Sometimes it’s alright to keep it all in. Cape Green is the minimal, but the soulful queen of modern elegance.

Cool collective

Cape Green is the collective name for different plant species native to the cape of Africa. There are a dazzling number of them, each with its own qualities.

Top choice

Odilia prides itself in finding the finest varieties each harvest. Pictured below is one of their top choices: striking, ball-shaped flowers in ocean tones, offset by dark green stems. Simple, subtle, very special.

Protea

Larger than life, older than time, shockingly beautiful. Everybody remembers their first encounter with a protea in bloom; the distinctive cone shape, the white mass of stamens surrounded by colorful leaves.

Varieties

There are hundreds of species, each different in style and size, some reaching up to 35 cm in size. From the star-shaped King protea to the playful protea Carnival, there are near-infinite possibilities.

True story

Protea’s story is a long one. The Proteaceae family dates back millions of years, and there’s no sign of stopping. She’s forever the symbol of change, hope, diversity, and courage

Leucadendron

This is leucadendron, a.k.a. cone bush. A single flower can be enough to light up a room: vibrant colors, weaving shapes, fantastic styles.

Family matters

Part of the Proteaceae family, leucadendron has similar qualities. Voluminous foliage, stems, and cones, spectacular flowers in various shapes, and an ever-growing color palette thanks to new hybrids.

Cultivation

Leucadendron requires a specific habitat, and today is mostly found in the South African fynbos and Australia. In the wild, the plants may reach 9 meters in height. The Odilia master growers prefer specimens a bit smaller – and fitter – in order to get spectacular blooms

Nutans

This pincushion protea is all sorts of different, and a genuine shot of sunlight at that.

Cultivation

Nutans, also known as leucospermum, is notoriously finicky, with most varieties having a limited ecological range and requiring specific conditions to grow. Thankfully, the Odilia master growers think she’s worth all the extra trouble.

Remix

Odilia highly recommends the luxurious look of nutans. Tall stems, voluminous foliage, distinct flowers in tones of orange, ochre, lemon, and shades of coral. It’s a classic beauty, remixed for today.

Banksia

Just take a look at the large, cone-shaped flower heads. Smell the sweet honey scent. Be bedazzled by the strikingly serrated foliage.

Cultivation

Indigenous to Australia, banksia is now cultivated on farms in Europe and Africa. Plants may take several years to fully establish themselves, requiring skill and patience from the grower.

Varieties

There are hundreds of varieties of banksia. They come in various colors and styles, ranging from a fresh yellow to a soothing pink. Each harvest Odilia handpicks the best for their collection.
