Summer Flower Trends
Summer is a time of abundance for flowers, with all colours
and shapes available. For something traditionally meadow-like, there are Alchemilla
(lady's mantle), campanula, marguerite (Chrysanthemum frutescens) and other annual
chrysanthemums, and solidago or goldenrod. Similarly cottage-garden in appearance
are Aconitum (monkshood), alliums, peony, phlox, scented stock (Matthiola), sweet
william (Dianthus barbatus), sweet pea, godetia or clarkia and sunflowers. More
exotic summer flowers include Eremurus (foxtail lily), tuberose (Polianthes),
and the bright sky-blues of agapanthus, hydrangea, trachelium, and triteliea.
Express your personality through flowers, whether it's with flower jewellery, floral handbags or heart-shaped designs. Find a personal meaning for you, using the diva flower of the Summer, roses.
