Oh the bells of Ireland, this is a favorite flower of my mother-in-law as she is married to an Irishmen. She gets so excited when she sees these and usually breaks out into some Irish song or other.

These beauties are the brightest green flower and are such a great addition to so many kinds of arrangements. I find that bright green really brings out the other colors that it is placed next to- a complimentary duo.

Ironically Bells of Ireland are not from Ireland at all, they get their name because of their fantastic green color. They are grown for the fresh cut industry in Columbia and California.
