Summer is upon us and we, at Finnflor, are always very exciting when a new season is coming up! This means new, colourful flowers to buy for our customers and learn more about the trends for that specific season. For summer we have listed three types of bouquets that are perfect to create. From white flowers to bright colours and meaningful flowers.
What you’ll need for… a white flower bouquet
- Tulips: The ever-cheerful tulip comes in white, red, yellow, pink, purple, orange, green or with multi-coloured petals. The shapes of the tulip are also a feast for the eye. From single to double row of petals.
- Freesia: The freesia comes in white, yellow, orange, red, blue, pink and purple, but can also be bicoloured or multicoloured. The freesia’s tuber forms small tubers under the soil called beads.
- Lilies: Lilies offer a host of possibilities in terms of colour, shape and size. The flowers come in peaceful white and soft pink, but also in eye-catching red, yellow, purple and orange. Some have stripes, fringes or spots. The flowers can have a diameter ranging from 7 to 25 centimetres.
- Orchids: The orchid fits with every style, so this beauty deserves the title of the Perfect Flower. There are more than 25,000 species and comes in gorgeous colours, from powder pastels to candy pink or Zen white.
What you’ll need for… a colourful flower bouquet
- Sweet pea: The sweet pea is a romantic flower, traditionally blooming on 21st June, the longest day of the year. The flowers are available in an endless array of soft pastel shades and blended colours. They look spectacular either as individuals, or clustered together on their long stems.
- Scabiosa: Brighten up any room with these fabulous flowers. The fantastic sweetly scented Scabiosa represents pure love. It radiates warmth, love, purity and peace.
- Delphinium: This blooming cousin of the ranunculus provides weeks of airy delight. The floral spikes tower over everything enthusiastically. They look like poles with bells that start tinkling as you pass.
- Marigold: Marigold flowers are made up of multiple layers of overlapping petals with the petals getting smaller and more condensed towards the flowers centre, similar to that of a carnation. The flower may be single or double coloured and can be varying hues of yellow, orange, red and maroon. Very colourful!
What you’ll need for… a meaningful midsummer bouquet
- Allium: This onion is prized not for its taste, but for the abundance of its flowers. Each long and stately stem of allium finishes a globe of tiny petals. A true eyecatcher.
- Gerbera: When you think of gerberas, you think of colour! The gerbera’s basic colours are white, red, yellow, pink, purple, orange and green. The flowers are also available bicoloured, multicoloured and in various colours derived from the basic colours.
- Gladiolus: The splendid gladiolus sends the beholder into raptures. This heroic flower rises high to show off all its colours. The flowers come in white, red, yellow, pink, purple, orange, cream. Some varieties even boast multiple colours per stem.
- Peony: Anyone who falls for the charms of the peony is in luck: there are more than 1000 varieties available in all sorts of shapes and colours. The fragrance of peonies is particularly appealing and beautifully sweet!
