Hibiscus Flower Bloom Holders

I live in the warm, moist climate of southwest Florida and I absolutely love hibiscus flowers.  The blooms only last one day but they are large and showy.  There are over 5000 varieties of hibiscus flowers.  How do you show off these big beautiful blooms?By placing them in delicate glass hibiscus vases. 
Hibiscus flower bloom holders are mentioned in the book "A Cutting Garden For Florida" by Betty Barr Mackey & Monica Moran Brandies.
I discovered these lovely single bloom flower vases many years ago when I moved from California to Florida.  These graceful and fragile glass vases resemble the shape of the hibiscus bloom. One beautiful bloom fits the opening perfectly. Purchase several of them and place them around your house to enjoy these colorful blooms all day long.


You can see some clear and pink glass hibiscus bloom holders on sale in my etsy shop at:

They are a challenge to pack because they are so delicate but they always arrive safely.

I wish that I had more to sell right now but I don't.

These vases are beautiful and I buy them whenever I see them. Living in Florida helps because they were popular here for many years.

As soon as I purchase more I will let you know.

Thank you, William for finding a source for these. Until I locate more vintage holders I will reference this site for purchasing them.
