Orlaya White Laceflower


Price shown is exclusive of VAT and is calculated at checkout.


Orlaya’s flowers are reminiscent of Queen Anne’s Lace, but it is a different plant altogether. They are arguably one of the most delicate fillers in spring and early summer bouquets. Very productive with continued harvesting. Flowers fade to produce interesting green seed heads that eventually turn brown.
