No words of man can explain the beauty of this place. For those of you I left behind, I will not say don’t cry. For not all tears are bitter, it’s hard to say goodbye.

Flower Spotlight: Dahlia

Imagine a flower that comes in almost as many sizes as it does colors. One that has had mysteries named after it and brides can’t seem to get enough of- Dahlias. They are romantic, mysterious, and so varied that they can often be mistaken for other flowers.

History

Dahlias are native to Mexico and Central America, where they were considered vegetables, not garden flowers. The tubers were introduced in Europe in the 18th century and they became known more for their blooms than their edible roots. The dahlia was brought to Europe by Abbe Cavanille and he named it after the Swedish scientist, Andreas Dahl.

Symbolism

The dahlia has many different meanings, and as with most flowers, this meaning varies by the color of dahlia given. The dahlia most commonly symbolizes dignity, elegance, commitment, diversity, and instability or betrayal.

Fun Facts

The dahlia genus was renamed Georgina in 1803 in error, and is still referred to by this name in some parts of eastern Europe.

The flowers on the dahlia can range in size from one inch to as big as a large dinner plate.

There are more than 40 recognized species of dahlias in existence.

Dahlias come in every color except for true blue and black. Dahlias that are traditionally known as black dahlias are actually burgundy.

They can have single or double flowers, as well as a ball, pompon, cactus, and waterlily types, among others.

Availability

The dahlia is often referred to as the most popular flower of the summer and often bloom into the fall. They can usually be found at your florist year round.

While this flower has gained widespread popularity, there are still many surprising facts left to discover. Keep reading and see if you learn something new about the Gerbera Daisy.

1. Gerbera daisies are available in all colors but blue. (If it’s blue, it’s artificial!)

2. This flower was discovered in 1880 by Robert Jameson while operating a gold mine in Transvall, South Africa.

3. Gerberas have a vase life of up to 14 days!

4. The gerbera flower is actually a cluster of hundreds of individual little flowers.

5. The gerbera is a classic symbol of beauty but it also holds the meaning of cheer. Many believe this symbolism stems from the large assortment of color options.

6. Gerbera daisies were not produced in North America until the early 1920s.

7. Gerbera are known to attract bees and butterflies.

8. Many people place gerberas by their bed to enjoy a better sleep! Gerberas emit oxygen and absorb toxins and carbon monoxide at night instead of during the day like most flowers.

9. Gerberas always turn towards the sun. They track the sun as it moves from east to west.

10. Gerbera is the birth month flower for April.

15 Hot Summer Flowers

If you enjoy having seasonal blooms on your table or in your home, check out this list of some of the most popular summer flowers available June through August. Your florist may not have all of these on-hand every day, but they should be available if you give them a couple days notice.

Rainbow of BloomsSavannah StyleCelebrate the Day

Sensational Summer Flowers

  1. Begonia – These are beautiful flowers that come in large variety of colors. They are native to tropical climates, but can be grown in colder regions of the world during the summer months. This flower traditionally means, beware or be cautious. Sound advice if you are planning on giving these flowers as a gift to your significant other.
  2. Chrysanthemum – These flowers have a long and storied history dating back to before the 15th Century BCE. So if you’re looking for blooms with a little gravitas, these are the flowers for you. They traditionally mean joy or optimism.
  3. Orchid – These delicate blooms represent love, luxury, beauty and strength. They have long been coveted flowers because of their fragile beauty and long lives.
  4. Gardenia  The perfect choice for the secret admirer or the smitten would-be lover. This flower traditionally means secret love and is a wonderful way to let someone know you’re thinking of them.
  5. Gerbera – A popular choice, this flower means innocence, purity and cheerfulness.
  6. Hyacinth – A wonderful flower for professing your devotion, the hyacinth traditionally means constancy. Its name comes from an unsurprisingly tragic tale from Greek Mythology, but then what Greek Myth doesn’t end in tragedy?
  7. Hydrangea – These make a wonderful gift to give after you’ve had a sincere apology accepted. The traditional meaning of hydrangea is heartfelt emotion and gratitude for being understood.
  8. Iris – The iris is another flower whose name hails from the Greeks. It stands for faith, hope, wisdom, courage and admiration.
  9. Lily – The lily may be a flower that has grown alongside mankind as long as there has been a thing such as mankind. As such, it has many different meanings depending on the culture you’re coming from.
  10. Lilac – Oh, those flower loving Greeks, they named another one! It should come as no surprise that so many summer flowers have names that come from the Greek isles. After all, the Mediterranean climate is sort of … summery. The lilac is perfect as a gift from a student to a teacher or from you to your child as the flower traditionally means youthful innocence.
  11. Magnolia – The magnolia tree is a common site throughout most of the South during the summer. It is a gorgeous white blossom that means splendid beauty and dignity and is perfect for that singular love of your life.
  12. Marigold – The marigold is a gorgeous flower that comes in bright, vibrant oranges and reds. It should then come as no surprise that it traditionally means passion and creativity. This makes it the perfect gift for that relationship in the heat of its life.
  13. Peony – The peony is lovely flower that means good fortune and a happy marriage. It is generally considered synonymous with the 12th wedding anniversary.
  14. Poppy – The poppy has a gorgeous bloom and means beauty, magic, consolation, fertility and eternal life. It makes a good gift for many different situations, and its versatility makes it popular.
  15. Rose – I’m sure you’re more than familiar with this extremely popular flower, but it is a summer flower and it’s popularity makes it impossible to leave off this list. Roses have many different meanings based on their color, but the most commonly known is red which means romantic love.

5 Reasons to Send June ’17

June isn’t the busiest holiday month, however, it still has its fair share of reasons to send. This month we look to honor some very important people, celebrate the official start to summer, and spread beauty. Every day brings a new start and a new day to be thankful for the ones we love. A great way to show that love is a beautiful bouquet of summer flowers.

Rose Month

Knockout, garden, tea, or spray: Each of these roses is beautiful in their own way. Roses come in so many different colors that it’s not hard to see why they are often the stars in floral arrangements. Take some time this month to visit your local florist and purchase a bouquet of roses for someone you love (or even yourself)!

D-Day- June 6th

June 6th, 1944 is a day that changed the course of history. Allied troops landed on the beaches of Normandy, France and began the long hard fight to victory. If you know any WWII veterans, send them a patriotic arrangement thanking them for their service or visit a local war memorial and leave flowers to honor our military, past and present.

National Making Life Beautiful Day- June 11th

Brighten someone’s day and help make it a little more beautiful by sending them flowers on National Making Life Beautiful Day. Sometimes it is the small gestures in life that make it beautiful.

Father’s Day- June 18th

Flowers for Father’s Day? You bet! If you’re really not sure about flowers for dad, try sending him a plant for the office or an awesome gift basket full of his favorite treats instead.

First Day of Summer- June 21st

Summer officially starts June 21st. Brighten up your home with a vase of flowers to bring the fun of summer indoors!

Flower Spotlight – Stargazer Lily

When looking for flowers to dazzle, Stargazer Lilies seem to do that effortlessly. With their vibrant colors and delicious fragrance, it’s hard not to take notice of this oriental hybrid!

Origins and Symbolism
Originating from California in the early 70s, this perennial has added to the already famous legacy of the lily, so it’s no surprise that this striking bloom has a variety of meanings.

Used to congratulate or for sympathy, Stargazers symbolism varies due to their color. Whites represent purity, while bright pinks and reds express aspiration and prosperity.

To Consider
Although this beauty looks beautiful planted or cut, caution is given to those who have feline friends.

The American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals reports this plant can be toxic to cats, causing vomiting, kidney failure and even death.

Availability
Named ‘stargazer’ because their blooms face the sky, these flowers are available late-summer.

Used in arrangements as well as bridal bouquets, they always astonish any receiver lucky enough to gaze at its star-like petals.

Make sure to head to Bud & Bloom to find this flower in an arrangement!
