Bloom Trends: What The Kale?

Kale has become quite popular in the “Health and Wellness” world, but did you know that it is also a rising star in the flower world too? This yummy veggie is turning heads in flower arrangements and wedding bouquets! We talked to Debbie Green of The Cottage at Queen Creek in Queen Creek, Arizona to give us the details!

This pretty bloom, Green says, is so popular because it is a big focal flower. Unlike hydrangeas, who are difficult to work with, Kale holds up no matter what!

“It’s beautiful year round,” Green said. “It comes in a variety of colors like purple, white, and deep greens.”

Green says she always suggests Kale to her brides because of how versatile and easy it is to work with. “I always suggest it to them and once they see it, they are blown away that this veggie can look so beautiful!”

Don’t knock it until you see it! The hues of purple really make this flower pop and, hey, maybe you can have it as a snack after the wedding!

Fall Flower Foliage

It’s October and our friends at the Society of American Florists know the best in fall flowers! Here is a great article coming from SAF’s blog, aboutflowersblog.com.

Fall is a Great Time for Fun, Foliage…and Flowers
by Brian Wheat

I’m blessed to live in an area of the country with four distinct seasons, where the trees and shrubs begin to notice the changing temperatures; their shadows grow longer, their leaves preparing for the inevitable change that’s lurking just around the corner. Across the country, fun-times abound with autumn festivals of pumpkins, hot apple cider and hayrides for many families’ weekend destination. A longstanding tradition of loading up the kids in the car and heading off to a farmer’s field to pick the perfect pumpkins and to make jack-o’-lanterns, connecting with Mother Nature and respecting her bounty. Fall is a time to be thankful, to reflect and show your appreciation by planting and by giving flowers.

Some wonderful traditional fall flowers to plant are the hardy garden mums with their palette of classic autumn hues of golds, yellows, bronze, purples and orange.
