Bring Spring into your home!
Welcome spring by filling rooms with fresh flowers. Whether it's bouquets of freshly cut wild flowers or pretty potted plants, nothing says spring quite like the addition of beautiful blooms.
What would warm weather be without flowers? Roses, tulips, anemones – these cheery reminders of spring and summer brighten up even the dullest day and you home decor. Not such a green thumb? That's ok! We're not all gardeners, but that doesn't mean we can't enjoy flowers galore in our homes. Mild weather means these blooming beauties are in abundance, so a trip or a phone call to your favorite florist means you can bring these pretty flowers home, today. No garden required!
Spring flower facts
Fact 1: Because cut peonies are in season for such an unpredictable, short period (around two weeks), no good florist will guarantee them for an event planned ahead of time, like a wedding, Margarite says. So, if you see cut peonies and you love them -- buy them! They'll be gone in a few weeks' time.
Fact 2: Tulips are the only flowers that continue to grow after they are cut
Fact 3: One of the only true blue flowers readily available is anemones. Most of the "blue" flowers you see are colored with food dye in their water.
Anemones and parrot tulips
Blue and purple anemones and fluttery two-tone burgundy parrot tulips make for a striking bouquet in saturated colours. A flourish of gauzy ribbon grounds the look. Anemones are one of the hottest flowers this spring, available in red, white, blue, purple and pink.
