I must confess, I am under the spell of a new chrysant. I never thought this would be possible, but it happened. The luminous heart in the center of Chrysanthemum Pastela Rosé allows me to play with the light with my designs, enchanting me with its luminous softness.

Chrysanthemum Pastela Rosé

Pastela Rosé is an exquisitely sweet variety of chrysanthemum by breeder Dümmen Orange. A few weeks ago I received a box from Dutch grower Zentoo.

The first thing I noted was that this double-flowered spray chrysant is generous with the quantity and quality of flower buds, and it offers us flowers with a multitude of petals of a very soft pink color collected by a heart of a tender and luminous green and yellow. In a vase the quantities and qualities of this flower allow us to take optimal advantage of its luminous softness.

Under the Spell

I am under the spell of this chrysanthemum that offered me all its generosity in my designs. Indeed, Pastela Rosé offers possibilities for a wide range of designs: poetic, classic, modern... Generous in the number of flowers on a robust stem it adapts very well to any bouquet and offers a vase life of at least fifteen days to three weeks. For more precise designs, The fine detailing on each stem is perfect for precise and refined designs.



Sophisticated and Reassuring Designs

With the roundness of its flower holding multiple petals, Chrysanthemum Pastela Rosé quickly becomes a tender and luminous setting for more sophisticated and reassuring designs. Its shade varies according to the light: I would describe it as a very pale pink which can vary to a more nuanced pink tone depending on the light, without forgetting its luminous heart going to a soft and radiant yellow. This way it seems that this chrysant is playing with light. Its shade combines very well with other colors, thus allowing subtle associations. The softness, the luminosity, and the generosity make it a variety of confident and reassuring.



Playing With the Light

The same flower, but different light brings a different color. That is the attraction of Pastela Rosé. Every type of light unveils a different shade of pastel pink from this spray chrysanthemum, putting you under its spell.

After a general school course, I went for a horticultural technician's certificate in order to better understand and know the different plant cultures. Through various internships in horticulture, it was not uncommon for some horticultural companies to have a retail flower shop. It was through these various internships that the passion for flowers first grew by sales and then by floral design. I then undertook the diploma courses in floral art CAP and French Professional Certificate. My experience was completed in various shops. Then I was recruited by one of the Meilleur Ouvrier de France Fleuriste. Colors, textures, a wide range of plants combined with observation, rigor, thoroughness, perfection, and emotion that will allow me over the years to refine my experience and the desire to transmit to them to professionals as well as laymen. After 15 years of shops - where I was in turn shop manager, apprentice master, and assistant for future Meilleur Ouvrier de France - I decided to show my skills to others through competitions resulting in the title of vice-champion of France in 2014. The affirmation of this title leads me to training others too.
