April’s favorite flower color is diamond-white. This year, we are spotlighting unique flower colors for you to use in custom flower arrangements, wedding bouquets, centerpieces and anywhere else you might need great-looking flowers. To make the chosen colors a little more interesting, we are starting with birthstone colors. Last month’s was aquamarine, and this month it’s diamond, or whiteish-silver.

The name diamond is derived from the ancient Greek word for “proper”, “unalterable”, “unbreakable, untamed.” This is a very fitting name for something as perfect and strong as the diamond.
We often see diamond used in jewelry, particularly for weddings, and it’s the birthstone for April.
When creating your wedding bouquet,
Since ‘diamond’ is not really a color, we are associating it with lighter shades of gray. There are many, stunning flowers that come in light gray colors, as well as shimming silver and pale blue. When creating a color scheme using these light grays, you can either stick with a monochrome palette, or add a punchy, accent color to really bring out the dynamics! Imagine bright red with silver-diamond colors, or how about a vivid blue paired with diamond flowers and silver accent.
This is a great flower guide for brides looking for unique color palettes and unusual flowers for their wedding.
The flowers above are all very unique, and florists may not carry them in their day-to-day supplies. If you are interested in using these diamond- white flowers, be sure to contact your florist in advance for their availability status. You may have to have them special ordered, but it is worth it! We’ve also listed the seasonal availability with each flower, this means they are more easily available during that time, and often cost less.
