Flowers Availability for Week of April 12
Sometimes my fresh flower vendors let me know what flowers are winding down, or are just ramping up, for availability. I thought I would pass this on, so that brides and other vendors know what's going out for the season, or coming in...this post can also help in following years. Here we go:
~Dahlias are still limited in quanitites for many of the bright seasonal colors; however, burgundy tones are most readily available and looking great!
~The season for ranunculas are winding down...
~Local anemones are just about finished for the season...
~We are at the tip of the peony iceberg for gorgeous local peonies. Production should be picking up and quanitities more plentiful as the weeks progress.
In addition, I see that the following are available:
- cherry branches
- field tulips
- green and black kangaroo paw (way, way cool!!!)
- sweet peas
- field daffodils
- almond branches
- dogwood branches
- pussy willow, 10 - 14' tall
- lily of the valley (but very, very costly)
