Seasonal Flowers

Autumn Expression

Flowers are the perfect way to embrace any occasion. From weddings and anniversaries to birthdays and Thanksgiving, flowers brighten the occasion and bring their own special touch of beauty and love. When ordering flowers, seasonal flowers are the best option as they are economical, beautiful, and easily available. Each season has its own variety of beautiful seasonal flowers. Spring brings you dogwood, hyacinth, lilac, and tulip, to name a few while summer brings cosmos, delphinium, larkspur, and more. Hydrangea, ornamental berries, rose, sunflower, Chrysanthemums, and sugar maple, are some of the flowers you will find in fall while winter flowers include evergreens, forced bulbs, ornamental berries, poinsettias and more.

It is almost ironic that nature itself has created flowers that fit perfectly for each season, from bright and cheerful colors to celebrate spring and summer, warm rich colors to celebrate fall, and cool, bright, and cherry colors to celebrate the winter months. For a wide pick of seasonal flower arrangements, you can rely on BrantFlorist.com to deliver you the freshest flowers.

July’s flower is the Water Lily and Larkspur

Burst of Light Bouquet

Just as there is a specific birthstone for each month, there is also a specific flower of the month that is symbolic to ones birth. July’s birth flower is the Water Lily with the alternate flower being the Larkspur. So basically, July babies have it made and are special with their two flowers.

The Water Lily, (Nymphaeaceae or “water lily family”), is a flowering plant that can be found throughout the world and is the national flower of Bangladesh. The fragrant Water Lilies are generally white in color. Florida has a species all its own that is called the Yellow Water Lily.

The larkspur (Ranunculaceae) is native throughout the Northern Hemisphere and on the high mountains of tropical Africa. Other names are, lark’s heel (Shakespeare), lark’s claw and knight’s spur. The flower has five petals which grow together to form a hollow flower with a spur at the end, which gives the plant its name.

Both the water lily and the larkspur are associated with lightheartedness and levity and evoke feelings of carefree, lightness, and relaxation.
