Spring is well underway in Columbus, and within a few weeks, we will be looking at summer already! Before the season passes by, Griffin’s Floral Designs wanted to share some of our favorite late spring flowers, so that when you are deciding on the perfect birthday arrangement or “just because” bouquet, you’ll know what is in season. While some spring flowers are popular year round – like roses – some are definitely more available at this time.
Expert Tip: If you are unsure as to what you are looking for, call us and ask which blooms have recently arrived at the shop. We’ll make a custom bouquet of the absolute freshest flowers – just for you. Peonies are available from late spring into early summer and are among the most beloved of all the flowers. They are popular due to their large flower heads that exhibit lavish, generous blooms, resembling a “ball” of soft petals that are elegant and luxurious. The peony comes in a variety of colors, and are often requested for bridal florals, as they stand for marital bliss and prosperity.
Fact: A peony bloom can be as large as ten inches across, and a single peony bush can blossom for up to 100 years!
Springtime Serenade, pictured here, is one of our most popular arrangements at this time of year. It showcases not only peonies but other spring favorites such as roses, snapdragons, Matsumoto asters, and hydrangea. (The peonies are the large, pink blooms flanking the middle pale pink rose.)
What’s in a Name? The snapdragon is so named because their long bloom looks like a dragon’s head, and when you pinch the sides of the flower, it appears the mouth of the dragon is opening and closing.
So throw open the windows, let the fresh air in, and fill your home with spring flowers! We don’t believe there is a better way to celebrate the season. Remember, Griffin’s Floral Design delivers locally to Columbus, Westerville, Pataskala, and Newark – but we will make sure your special delivery arrives beautifully no matter where it needs to go, across the region or across the country.
