On 29 September 2019 it’s World Heart Day. World Heart Day is organized yearly by the World Heart Foundation. On World Heart Day they want to create awareness with this campaign for heart health. World Heart Foundation: “This year on World Heart Day, as part of our mission to ensure heart health equity for all, we want to create a global community of Heart Heroes … people from all walks of life who are acting now to live longer, better, heart-healthy lives by making different promises.” Raise awareness in your flower shop for World Heart Day with our selection of flowers with a beautiful ‘heart’: calla, anthurium, dahlia, protea and campanula.
The calla (Zantedeschia) stands for purity, sympathy and beauty. There are many colours: from almost black to white, from yellow to red and from pink to lilac. The calla has a funnel-shaped bract with the almost invisible spike. The shape kind of reminds us of a heart… Right?
A heart can be discovered in the form of the anthurium flower. When you look at it, you’ll immediately see a heart shape. Perfect for showing someone how much you value them. And nowadays the anthurium is available in many different sizes and shapes. The colours vary from the beautiful burgundy, cerise, green, pink, white and red.
Love has many interpretations in the world of flowers. Peonies and roses are the undisputed kings of love and romance. But did you know that the dahlia symbolises ‘yours forever’? The dahlia’s most eye-catching feature is its petals: sometimes evenly coloured, but often noticeably bright with spots or lines. Some flowers have a single row of petals, others have dozens; this fabulous flower has an incredible number of colour and shape variations. For example: the petals can be round, elongated or rolled. Besides, that ‘heart’ of the dahlia can be hidden or shown out in the open. A very mysterious one…
A robust beauty – that’s the best way to describe Protea. With its ingenious orange and pink bracts, mysterious heart (the flower) and sturdy stem, it’s hard to overlook them. Protea’s flowers are surrounded by coloured – often hairy – bracts. The bracts are sometimes close to the flower, whilst on some varieties they fan out and show off the white heart clearly. The colours range from pale to dark pink, with white and saffron tones around the flower.
Campanula comes from a big family with more than 300 species (Campanulaceae). As you might have guessed, the botanical name is the Latin word for ‘little bell’. And this bell has a different chime everywhere. The campanula comes in white, pink and purple. The usually long stem bears a flower in the shape of… a little bell. During flowering the bells open further, but this punctual flower offers few other surprises.
