Cold Weather Blooms
Posted on November 15 2017
We’re about halfway throughout November now, and some days are starting to feel like it’s the dead middle of winter. Despite these plummeting temperatures, there are plenty of flowers out there that are still looking absolutely beautiful this time of year. Today, we invite you to join us as we go over some of our favorite winter blooms! Pansy Brightly colored with many variations, the pansy is a staple amongst florists nationwide. Not only are these flowers extremely easy to grow, but they absolutely love the cool weather and actually thrive with crisp, November weather. Symbolizing loving thoughts and free thinkers, this flower is the perfect gift for the student in your life as the weather starts to turn. Petunia Another striking flower, the petunia is a great flowers to make it through the plummeting temperatures of fall. In fact, in some frost-free regions of the country, these flowers are planted in the winter—not the summer. With pink blooms symbolizing motherly love and compassion, it is the perfect flower to gift to your mom this time of year. And no, you don’t need a reason to do so (in fact, giving flowers “just because” is one of the most impactful ways to gift them!) Siberian Iris Okay, the name gives this one a way a little bit, but it doesn’t take away the fact that this flower is absolutely georgous. Sporting a deep purple color, this flower is used to growing in the cold, as it is native to northern Turkey and Russia. Overall, this flower stands for respect and faith...great to give to someone close to you or as a get-well-soon flower. Aster Another beautiful, purple bloom, the aster has dotted the gardens of New England for years, and typically will provide some well-needed color when the rest of the flowers start to fade. One very nat fact about the aster is that they serve as a nectar plant for the hordes of Monarch butterfiles heading to Mexico for the winter. Standing for feelings of love and elegance, with the combination of attracting many butterfiles, makes the aster a viable candidate for your cold-weather arrangement from us. Again, just because the thermometer is going down does not mean that there are fewer fresh flowers available—especially from us. Stop by today and see what we can do for you!
