Innovation is one of the most important pillars within Marginpar: we want to keep surprising buyers and florists with special flowers of great quality. Recently we introduced a new Chasmanthium variety: Chasmanthium Latifolium 'Mantis'.

Chasmanthium Latifolium 'Mantis' has larger and greener flags, a clear structure, does not discolour and has a beautiful shine.


The name 'Mantis' is derived from the green praying mantis. Praying mantises protect themselves from predators by camouflaging, a clever technique with their green colour and leaf structure.
