The Forbidden Bouquet

Each flower species has its own unique fingerprint, characteristics, makeup, scent, color and qualities. There are hundreds of thousands of different flowers world wide. Like the popular ones, there are not so popular flowers. For one reason or another, florist and designers choose not to use certain flowers in bouquets. For example spray allium is absolutely one of the most dainty and beautiful flowers I have ever seen but it is in the family or more commonly known as the Onion. So you can imagine the pungent odor this flower gives off. I could help but to gather about 5 bunches of these little stinkers and make a bouquet out of them.
