Endemic to Australia these gorgeous creamy white flowers are a stunning addition to a wedding bouquet.

They have a daisy like form and a raised textured centre of sage green to creamy yellow green. Each petal feels soft to the touch like flannel and are tipped in the softest grey green.

As part of an Australian native bouquet they are perfect with the softer colours of proteas, bottle brushes, grevilleas and hakeas. Team them with grey leaves of dusty miller or bolder plum coloured leaves. Use them in bouquets with softer coloured lavenders, hyacinths or narcissus or use them in their own right as a single flowered bouquet. Against the softer hues of apricot, yellow, grey blue, sage or pink they will look stunning in their simplicity.

    I am having flannel flowers in my bouquet and decorations for my wedding in December. They are so cute, last for ages and hold up really well to the heat. Will post in a pic after the pic day!

    This is just weird. I have just decided I am having flannel flowers in my bouquet and decorations for my wedding in December. I got a few odd looks when I suggested these blooms to family and friends. Anyway I am going for it. They are so cute, last for ages and hold up really well to the heat. Will post in a pic after the big day!

    I can’t imagine getting funny looks for suggesting these flowers… They look like a bit plain on their own but are a very nice addition to a white bouquet as pictured.
