Calla Lily or Lilly of the Valley? Get it right for the games


Ambius provides a guide to National flowers

With just 100 days to go to the start of the games, Ambius, the flower and planting expert for the hotel and hospitality sector has launched a guide to the national flowers for all 227 participating countries. If you’re not sure whether it’s a Calla Lily - the national flower for Ethiopia, or Lilly of the Valley - the flower for Finland, that’s more appropriate, the guide from Ambius will help.

Ambius provides stunning plant and floral arrangements and floral bouquets to hotels, caterers and businesses looking to make the right impression to visitors and guests.

Trisha Haughey, MD of Ambius says: “With visitors descending on London from around the globe, we know that hoteliers and hospitality managers will be looking to make guests feel as welcome as possible. And if a special contingent is expected from one of the participating countries, you want to make sure it’s their national flower they see rather than an opposing nation. It’s all too easy to make a faux pas! So rather than confuse a red carnation – the national flower for Spain, with a red poppy, the flower for Belgium, check out our easy guide and add a personal touch to flower gifts and arrangements.”
