Flowers of the Month
Gorgeous hydrangeas accompanied with exquisite peonies - we adore these flowers!
Summer is just around the corner and it’s a prime time for beautiful, seasonal flowers. Choosing flowers that are in season means you are getting fresh, colourful blooms that actually cost less because they are in season. In the spirit of summer, we’ve rounded up our top five seasonal summer flowers.
Lisianthus flowers are sometimes overlooked but their subtle, gentle ruffles are refreshing in any bouquet. They are a member of the Gentianaceae family and related to Persian violets. They are fragrance free and therefore perfect for anyone with allergies. Try our ‘Busy Lizzies Pink Bouquet’ for a delightful combination of pink and white lisianthus blooms with seasonal foliage this summer.
Nothing says summer quite like a sunflower. They are bright, fun flowers with lots of positive energy. Sunflowers can be a fun statement piece for your table and look great in any vase. The French word for sunflowers is ‘tournesols’ which literally translates to ‘turned towards the sun’. They are usually yellow but can also be found in shades of orange.
White and Pink Roses
A classic and popular option, pairing white and pink roses together not only look stunning but also have a greater meaning. White roses often symbolise innocence and youthfulness but can also symbolise new beginnings. Different shades of pink roses can mean different things. A pale pink rose can symbolise grace, joy and happiness whilst a deeper, hot pink can mean gratitude and appreciation. Looking to say thank you with roses? Try our Antique Roses bouquet.
Lilacs have their origin rooted in Greek mythology. The nymph, Syringa, turns herself into a lilac shrub to avoid being pursued by the god Pan. Today, a purple lilac symbolises new or first love. As the weather gets warmer, remind someone you love them with purple lilacs. Our Lilac Heaven bouquet perfectly mixes purple lilacs with stunning pink roses for a deeply romantic finish.
