Some of the most beloved summer flowers include sunflowers, dahlias, roses, lilies, or a mix of wildflowers. Sunflowers are known for their bright yellow petals and large size, making them a great flower in any summer arrangement. Roses are classic and elegant, with shades ranging from soft pastels to bold reds. Daisies and cornflowers are perfect for adding a pop of whimsy, color, and sweetness. Rudbeckias (coneflowers) offer a classic wildflower look and sweet scent. Dahlias are show-stoppers with their intricate, layered petals and bold colors, and classic summer hydrangeas add a touch of nostalgia and elegance to an arrangement. Incorporating these classic summer flowers into your arrangements will create a beautiful display that captures the essence of the season.

Preserving the Beauty of Your Summer Flower Arrangements: Care Tips

summer flower arrangementDon’t let the heat stop you from sending or bringing someone a floral arrangement! You can keep them looking fresh and beautiful with a few simple tips. The first step is to trim the stems at an angle before placing them in a vase with clean water. Change the water every two days, adding flower food to help extend their lifespan. Keep the flowers away from direct sunlight, heat sources, and drafts. If you notice any wilted or dead flowers, remove them immediately to prevent bacteria growth that can harm the rest of the arrangement. If you’re displaying your flowers outdoors or in a warm area, keep an eye on the water level and refill as necessary. Also, change the water and remove dead or drying leaves, and recut the stems every two days to keep your arrangement looking fresh longer. Summer flower arrangements are the perfect way to brighten up any space, and they make the perfect gifts. From classic blooms like sunflowers and dahlias to more unique options that will “wow” any recipient, Orchard Lane Flowers will always offer something unique and beautiful. With proper care and maintenance, our arrangements can last for weeks, spreading the love long after they’re received or purchased.
