Last weekend’s clear and temperate summer solstice delivered us from spring into what we hope will be warm and radiant months ahead. As we approach July and bid adieu to the gorgeous spring blooms that helped melt away the winter, our floral design team lets us know what we can look forward to next.
PLUSH PEONIES AND CHEERFUL TULIPS DELIGHTED US ALL SPRING. WHAT’S NEXT?
SUCH GREAT HEIGHTS: GLADIOLUS & SUNFLOWERS
Make way for the long and lovely gladiolus. Watching the progression of their emerging blooms is absolutely worth the wait, and their lengthy stalks make excellent focal arrangements.
A true testament to the season, sunflowers immediately and effortlessly bring light and life to any occasion.
GARDEN VARIETY: CELOSIA & CROCOSMIA
Unusual in shape and texture, the varieties of celosia each offer a wonderful deviation from the norm.
Petite and intricate, crocosmia add texture and brilliant color to any arrangement, and are also perfect for floral accessories such as boutonnieres or bouquets.
SHAPE UP: DAHLIAS & ASTILBE
Layers of rounded petals give dahlias a rich depth that is truly captivating. Possessing both bold and organic qualities, these blooms have versatility for different styles of centerpieces, arrangements and bouquets.
Whimsically spiky and covered in tiny, intricate blooms, astilbe adds a wonderful, rustic softness. In white or pale pink, astilbe beautifully accents pastels and deep colors alike.
Seasons move fast; all of us at HMR Designs remind you to stop and admire the flowers. Thanks to our floral design team for sharing their expertise and helping us to welcome summer.
