Anemonies 

Anemonies are the provincial flower representing Härjedalen, in central Sweden. The name is often recited in elocution lessons at school: “many an anemonie meets an enemy anemonie”. This sought-after flower is unique to this region, and is part of the buttercup family. It has tuffed leaves and short stems, is lanceolate shaped, and sports six petals which are a shade between white and pink.

Smörboll

European Globe Flowers, or Smörboll as they are known locally, are the symbol for Medelpad, which is a province in the north of the country. These perennial flowers are a stunning bright yellow, and as the name suggests, they are globular in shape. They are also a member of the buttercup family, and can easily be confused with buttercups. It is only their tulip-like appearance which holds the clue to making the distinction. If you would like to surprise someone with a fabulous bouquet of flowers, FloraQueen is at your service with the best and freshest flowers on offer.
