What the heck is that flower? #1

Beyond roses, lilies and peonies, flower names remain a mystery to most. Admittedly, before I became a florist, I too had no idea about flower names, resorting to descriptions such as “that pink fluffy one” and “the bluey-greeney kind of spiky one”.

So in the interest of growing your general knowledge (think pub trivia) and making your next trip to the florist a little easier, welcome to the first installment of WTHITF! I also hope these will be useful posts for couples with upcoming weddings – the month/season is included so you can see when flowers are available :)

Today’s image comes from a wedding back in December -fun, pretty and textured – this bouquet has some of spring/summer’s best blooms!

December summer bouquet

My personal favourite of the lot are the pom pom chrysanthemums, don’t they look like big balls of fun? The best part is they are available year round, so anyone can have these cuties at their wedding!

If you have a flower you’d like to know the name of, email us a picture and we’ll include it in an upcoming WTHITF post!
