Dahlias are breathtaking blooms that grow in a rich variety of colors, shapes, and sizes. Injecting drama wherever they are placed, these sun-loving flowers always steal the show.
Simple yet full of joy, daisies always manage to brighten and cheer up any room. Blooming throughout June and July, daisies grow in a variety of colors and styles. The Shasta Daisy, however, with its white petals and yellow center is perhaps the most recognizable flower in the world.
With magnificent, tall spikes filled with colorful blooms, delphiniums are loved by gardeners and florists alike. You’ll find these sumptuous, lush blooms in a variety of summer arrangements. We think they look amazing on their own as well.
An extravagant bloom that is lush, large, and loaded with romantic symbolism, peonies are a favorite flower in June weddings. Peonies are popular as cut flowers and add grace, elegance, and luxury to any setting.
Unrivaled in popularity, roses thrive in the summer sun. With numerous different types and cultivars that grow in a variety of shapes, colors, and sizes, the rose is beloved across all cultures. Generally associated with love and romance, each different-colored rose is imbued with its own rich symbolism and meaning.
Vibrant, bright, and always cheerful, sunflowers are a great symbol of summer, good luck, and vitality. A vase of sunflowers can instantly perk up any room.
