Other flowers in bloom this season:

Bachelor’s Button

What more appropriate flower for a wedding than a Bachelor’s Button?  Botanically, it is called Centaurea. It is one of the rare, strikingly blue flowers.  It is appropriately used at weddings since the groom is no longer a bachelor and no longer blue. Ushers frequently wear this flower in their lapels.


Freesia is one of the most popular flowers, possibly because it is so distinctive. Freesia have long, narrow, sword-shaped leaves which grow in two rows.The flower stalk is branched with 8-14 flowers growing from the top of the stalk at a 90 degree angle, forming a comb.  Some compare this comb of flowers to a wedding party, with the two largest blossoms signifying the bride and groom and the remaining buds the attendants.

Star of Bethlehem

The Star of Bethlehem, botanically known as Ornithogalum, features white flowers with either a white-green or a black-grey center. The Star of Bethlehem was so named because it reminded the priests of flowers that were found in churches of the sacred city of Bethlehem. In medieval times, this flower was used to signify the religious commitment of the bride to the groom.

Happy planning!
