Bouvardia Hybrid
'Lady Stephanie'

Bouvardia Ternifolia

A fragrant bloom often used for weddings,
Bouvardia seems to have everything going for
it.  It has a characteristic scent, making it
especially appealing for bouquet work and small arrangements.  It has an incredibly long vase life
of three weeks and is available year-round.

The flowers are delicate and grow in clusters. 
Each tubular Bouvardia blossom is star shaped. 
The flower is formed by a cluster of these
regularly shaped stars and is set off by simple
leaves, which make an excellent frame for the
blossoms.  Each flower in the cluster is about 1
inch in diameter.  The Bouvardia blossoms come
in shades of white, pink, salmon and red.

Historically, the Bouvardia was known for its
curative properties.  It was named in honor of Dr.
Charles Bouvard, who was the physician to King
Louis XII.  He created hundreds of different
medicines using the flower.  The King thought
this flower was responsible for his long life. 
Symbolically, Bouvardia is welcome at weddings
as brides and grooms are toasted for a long life.
