We tend to think of spring as prime time for flowers, but fall has its own special mix of elegant and exuberant blooms. September, in particular, is a great month for seasonal specials. You might be surprised at the number and variety of flowers that are showing off in late summer and early fall. Follow along as we tiptoe through some of our favorite September seasonal blooms.
Many roses go through two blooming cycles during the year, a major bloom in spring and then a smaller, but just as lovely, bloom in the fall. This means many roses are in season for September. This is great news for anyone planning a fall wedding with a traditional style theme. Romance is year-round! You can also feel good about picking out a selection of seasonal roses to share your love with that special someone.
As September moves along, think about branching out into fall rose colors such as yellow and orange to really celebrate the arrival of autumn. Peoples’ English Breakfast bouquet features a combination of fanciful fall blooms, including yellow roses and hydrangeas.
Dahlias are a quintessential flower of late summer and early fall. These flowers are very architectural in their shape and come in many different colors, ranging from peppy pink to antique-looking bronze. Dahlias are small wonders of geometry, with each bloom radiating outward in a show of beauty.
A collection of dahlias can make for a truly stunning bridal bouquet for a September wedding. Their shape, strength, and beauty will compliment any dress or decor. Peoples’ experienced wedding consultants can help you track down the perfect dahlias to meld with your wedding theme and colors.
Showy hydrangeas are prized for their variety of colors and pom-pom blooms. These fun flowers typically begin blooming in mid-summer and continue into early fall. Hydrangeas can be combined with other flowers to create a unique look that really stands out. Peoples’ Stargazers and Hydrangeas bouquet is a great example of this. The strong lines of the lilies show up in stunning contrast against a canvas of hydrangeas.
Asters are a favorite fall plant. These hardy flowers bloom well into autumn. They attract butterflies when planted in a garden, and will be sure to attract your eye when included in a bouquet. Asters are prolific bloomers with small flowers that lend a sense of softness to an arrangement. They are often found in shades of pink, purple and white. Add them as accents to a larger bouquet or enjoy their delicate daisy-like flowers grouped together in a dainty collection.
