SKU: T00334A

Dried Carthamus Natural Green, Bunch

With its thistle-like structure, Carthamus, or Bidens as it is sometimes known, is available in natural green or natural orange colours. Carthamus tinctorius is sometimes referred to as false saffron or Safflower. Safflower is one of humanity's oldest crops. Ancient textiles have even been identified as being dyed using safflower. The other really amazing fact is that flower garlands made from safflowers were found in the tomb of Pharaoh Tutankhamun!

Today this flower is commercially grown for its oil and the flowers are still used to create natural dyes. However, our crop is grown and dried in Holland and is an extremely popular flower within dried flower arrangements.

Useful Information:

  • Stems within the bunch are up to 60cm in length
  • The stems can be slightly prickly so take care when handling them
  • Available in Natural Orange and Natural Green

Larger volumes available to purchase with notice

Care Instructions:

  • Dried flowers do not require any water.
  • Avoid bright sunlight to prevent fading.
  • Keep away from dampness and moisture.
  • Dried products may last up to two years if looked after correctly.

Testimonials

“We have worked with Atlas for 4 years and wouldn’t order dried flowers or sundries anywhere else. Their selection of dried flowers is by far the best in the U.K. — we love the variety of colours and flowers available.

The team at Atlas are highly professional and friendly, nothing is too big an ask. Orders always arrive punctually and the flowers are always packed with love and care ensuring no breakages during transport.

Atlas have also been open to ordering in new products specifically for us if there is something they don’t stock. It goes without saying we highly recommend using Atlas for any of your floral or sundry needs.” 

Chloe Milligan

Creative Director at Mud Urban Flowers

"At Florence and Flowers we specialise in making bespoke wedding arrangements using dried flowers.

Quality is the number one thing that we look for from our suppliers and for that reason we use Atlas Flowers time and time again. The quality of their dried flowers is excellent, as is the speed of delivery and their willingness to source additional colours and flowers when we receive requests for custom designs.

Atlas Flowers are a pleasure to work with and we highly recommend!"

“I have ordered from Atlas over the last 3 years and I am delighted with the quality of the faux range for my many installations on Guernsey. The flowers look so life like it is hard to tell they aren’t real. The delivery and service is fantastic.

The dried range is also very good and the homewares section is gorgeous - I have ordered many a vase for my own home.

I cannot recommend the team at Atlas highly enough”
