Autumn Flower Guide
Summer isn't the only time for spectacular flowers. Just because the warm season has ended, doesn't mean the varieties will be any less gorgeous. Don't give up on the pretty blooms just yet friends. We have so much in store for the Autumn months at Daily Blooms and want to share with you some of our favourites. Make sure you keep an eye out, as it's highly likely you will see some of these stunners in our bunches over the coming weeks.
Dahlias are a wonderfully textured flower and a favourite among the DB ladies. Their flamboyant blooms burst onto the scene in late summer, lasting well throughout the Autumn months and come in a spectacular mix of colours. We are digging the burnt orange and deep burgundy for Autumn. Named after the Swedish botanist, Dr Anders Dahl, Dahlias are part of the daisy family. These stunners have around 30 species and thousands of different hybrids.
Striking goblet-shaped creations, Proteas are an amazing combination of fluffy centres and brightly coloured bracts, which look almost too fabulous to be real. The Protea is a family of gorgeous unique flowers that are known for long lasting and hardy blooms that won’t wilt in hot weather. In local tradition, the Protea flower represents change and hope and originates from South Africa. We are loving the vibrant reds for the coming months.
There are few flowers as showy as Celosia. There's the plumed type, with its striking upright spires, or the crested type with its fascinating twisted form, we love using Celosia in our bouquets. The flowers are beautiful fresh, but they can also be dried easily and not to mention they bloom in the striking colours of a glowing sunset which makes them the perfect Autumn flower. The name is derived from the Ancient Greek word kḗleos, meaning "burning," and refers to the flame-like flower heads.
A classic and popular style at DB, Snapdragons are one of the few flowers that come in a wide variety of colours. These cool-season annuals make a lovely addition to our bouquets and are known to resemble the face of a dragon that opens and closes its mouth. Fun fact, in addition to growing the plants for cut flowers, the seeds have been used to extract edible oils, particularly in Russia. Keep an eye out for vibrant reds, yellows and oranges in our bunches.
