ith the arrival of autumn, there is something magical in the air. Nature prepares for its hibernation, but not before treating us to an explosion of colour. The Jatropha Firecracker, with its striking deep red colour, brings a warm glow to our interior and captures the essence of autumn perfectly.

This cut flower seems to have been plucked straight from the sea, but the reality is that it grows at the foot of Mount Kilimanjaro in Tanzania. The Jatropha Firecracker has not only captivated us but also the creative designers at Bloom's. The result? An inspiring autumn explosion.

An eye-catching room decoration

This unique design is more than just a home decoration; it grabs attention and gives the Jatropha Firecracker a special place in the spotlight. A sturdy metal frame forms the base, where vines and fruit stems are easily attached with strips of fabric.

The composition also includes Crocosmia Prince of Orange, Miscanthus White Cloud, and the deep red shades of Scabiosa Dark Cherry Scoop®. Each flower stands in glass tubes filled with water, contributing to the overall appearance and structure.

A place to shine

In this flower arrangement, the Jatropha Firecracker gets a place to shine. What makes this design unique is the clever elevation of the base, making it appear larger and highlighting the colour of the Jatropha even better.

At the bottom rest Reynoutria Japonica stems. Additionally, you can see the cut flowers Crocosmia Prince of Orange, Daucus carota 'Dara', Panicum Heavy Metal, and Sanguisorba Red Dream®.

An environmentally conscious expression

This vase exudes the warm autumn atmosphere, combined with the Jatropha Firecracker, Crocosmia Prince of Orange, and Sanguisorba Red Dream®. What stands out is the creative use of glass tubes, attached to the Reynoutria Japonica stems with old bicycle tires. This not only adds sustainability to the arrangement but also gives it a light and airy feeling thanks to the angled stems.
