Pink Rice Flowers, in the Pimelea Family
Fresh from the press this week we have pink Rice Flowers. These are easy to press and turned out great. They came out of the press just like the color of the fresh Rice Flowers.
I’m looking forward to getting some fresh white Rice Flowers. I think they’ll keep their nice white color very well.
I really like these.
Pressed Mimosa Flowers, Also Known as Wattle or Acacia
As far as pressed flowers go, I’d have to say that Mimosa is one of my favorite yellow flowers to press. Mimosa, with its beautifully rich golden-yellow color, still looks as fresh as the day it came out of the press decades later. Besides “Mimosa” this is commonly called, Thorn-tree, Whistling Thorn, or Wattle. This is a shrub in the Mimosa family and has a very nice fern-like foliage, as seen in the picture below, so press the entire plant!
Pressed Gerberas – This is a Florist Flower
Fresh from the press today, I have these vibrant orange
Gerberas. Gerbera is also commonly known as African Daisy and is a member of the sunflower family, Asteraceae. They are about 4″ across and really add focus.
