Gomphrena (Strawberry Fields)
Gomphrena Strawberry Fields, (real name Gomphrena Haageana), is a herbacious plant and is native to Mexico and Texas.
The name 'strawberry fields' is because of the small red flower that resembles a strawberry.
Gomphrena Strawberry Fields is available as a cut flower on the wholesale flower markets and is usually sold in wraps of 50 stems. Gomphrena are rarely used in wedding flowers but can look quite effect and are well worth experimenting with.
Gomphrena Globosa and Gomphrena Spray Purple are rarely available these days.
