Flower Spotlight: Wheat

Wheat is not only good for making bread, but can also be used for decoration. Here is a brief history and ideas for making beautiful fall arrangements using this grain!

History & Origins

Wheat is a cereal grain grown more than any other crop in the world. It is believed that wheat originated in southwest Asia, but now grows in almost every state of the U.S. Wheat is a mix between three different species of grass and is dated back to about 10,000 B.C. The grain has been a source of food since the very beginning of civilization and continues to play a big role in today’s society.

Availability

Wheat can be found anywhere, especially this fall season. Dried wheat automatically give any type of arrangement a touch of “fall glow.” We tend to only think about flowers as centerpiece arrangements, yet this little grain has continued to trend on its own in the wedding scene. Mix arrangements with lavender, fall colored flowers and herbs like chamomile for a more dashing look.

If you have an idea in mind, don’t hesitate to run it by your local florist! Even something as unthinkable as a grain can make a long lasting impression on your special day or as a unique fall arrangement!
