FJURA | Fritillaria and Lily of the Valley

There is danger beneath the surface of Fjura’s latest arrangement, as Fritillaria and Lily of the Valley make for a potent combination.

A curious plant that blurs the line between health and harm: Fritillaria. While many kinds are poisonous in large quantities, they also have a history of medicinal use either side of the Pacific Ocean, and are edible with careful preparation.

To look at, though, the curling petals and arched leaves give a sense of movement, excitement offset by the delicate stem of bell-shaped blooms, a dappled cluster of Lily of the Valley. Seemingly innocuous, another plant that hides poison beneath its woodland beauty.

These flowers were chosen to complement a champagne glass by J. Hill's Standard. We believe all three are united by a very specific quality, elegance that disguises an innate robustness.



“I would far rather have two or three lilies of the valley gathered for me by a person I like, than the most expensive bouquet that could be bought!”
