Flower of the Month Monday

Flower of the Month: July – Larkspur

A field full of Larkspur.

It’s birthday month here at the shop! We are celebrating two birthday’s this month, Althea’s on the 12th and Farron’s on the 13th, which makes this month’s flower even more special!

This month we are celebrating everything Larkspur! The Larkspur (or Delphinium) is a gorgeous flower that is one of the more popular “cut flowers” in the event world. It can create height and dimension in a centerpiece and give depth to a bouquet.

Colors of the flower vary and can include purple, blue, red, yellow and white. The petals grow together forming a spur at the end and giving the flower its name, Larkspur. The Larkspur starts blooming in the spring and into late summer making this a great flower for any spring/summer event!

As always, we have picked through our masses of pictures to bring you a sampling of how to use this gorgeous flower! We hope you enjoy looking and take inspiration from what beauty a simple flower can make. 

Larkspur makes this traditional bouquet come to life with added height taking traditional to custom.

Larkspur mixed in to add dimension.

Larkspur (Delphinium) with Curly Willow can make a great bouquet full of texture.
