Sorry, no etymologies found.
Assorted colors of roses, spray roses, carnations (wouldn't do those again), and misty limonium as the filler.
The Sea Lavender, or Thrift (_Statice limonium_) grows near the sea, or in salt marshes.
Of course, she doesn't call it statice, she calls it limonium perezii, because it's not actually statice, only similar to statice.
It features yellow lilies, yellow and white cushion mums, burgundy snapdragons, off-white roses, yellow alstroemeria, misty blue limonium, hypericum, ruscus leaves, and salal leaves.
