what flowers are ‘in season’

February 17, 2011

This ‘warm’ weather has everyone  loving a break from the cold, drab winter and thinking forward to spring…

Put a little color on your table this week by picking up some flowers from your local floral shop or market.  Flowers that are in season right now are:

Alstromeria: it comes in red, pink, orange, white, yellow, purple, and varigated varieties and blooms it for days! It's a great flower that lasts.

 

Crysanthemums: they come in many colors and sizes. My favorites are the 'button mums' and the 'spider mums'. This is a flower that also lasts a long time and they smell pretty too!

 

Gerbera Daisy: this flower comes in red, orange, yellow, pink, purple and white. The head of this flower is about 3-4" and it can get a little top heavy. A simple solution is to support it with some floral wire or a large straw that slides over the stem.

 

Lily: these come in many colors and variations. The one shown here is a 'Stargazer Lily'. This flower has a strong, but delightful scent. One tip for this flower: it's best to remove the pollen right away so it doesn't stain your table cloth or it's petals. It also makes the bloom last longer.

 

Queen Ann's Lace: Instead of using baby's breath for filler, use this! It's very pretty and delicate. It adds another layer of texture to your arrangement.
