Summer is when we enjoy the greatest abundance. This is not only the case when it comes to fruit and vegetables, but it’s also true for flowers. The warm weather encourages plenty of flowers to bloom and this means that we really can take our pick! If you are looking for the best flowers to decorate your home or office during the summer months, here are some excellent options. Not only will they brighten the room, but they will also help improve your mood!
There is no doubt that the most popular of all summer flowers is the rose. These flowers bloom during the hottest months of the year and they are available in various colours. Since they are in season, now is the time to make the most of the more reasonable prices. Rose bouquets can be arranged according to the amount of space you have available. For example, a small bunch of roses can be places in a small vase for a side table. If you want a more impressive floral display, then you can order a larger number of long-stemmed roses to put on display. Red roses are associated with romance and yellow ones symbolise friendship. Mixed rose bouquets include various colours and they are a popular choice for those looking to spoil themselves with fresh flowers.
Sunflowers are also an excellent choice for this time of year. Since summer is associated with sunnier days and these flowers love the sun, they really are a fitting choice. These flowers usually have long stems and they can be displayed all on their own without any other flowers or foliage. Remember, although they love the sun when attached to the plant, once cut, this bouquet should be kept out of direct sunlight.
Another popular cut flower is the carnation. They have very long bloom cycles and they are also known for being one of the cheapest flowers too. Carnations are really hardy and, as cut flowers, they are one fo the longest lasting of all. They can be enjoyed all on their own but, if you really want them to stand out, add some foliage like fern along with a touch of baby’s breath for the best results.
Don’t forget to always choose bright colours for your summer bouquet. Pastel shades are better suited for spring. You can even opt for flowers with a tropical touch like cockscomb, amaranthus, and gladiolus. Lilies are also an excellent option and they are available in various striking shades.
