In this week’s flower mix, we are exploring a combination of coral and salmon blooms to inspire you for up and coming weddings and events. Announced as this years Color of the Year: Living Coral, coral has become extremely popular with our customers over the course of the year. 

Recipe:

  1. Rose Pompidou – Beautiful medium to large headed variety in pink colour shade with darker edges. Ideal for bohemian styled events.
  2. Rose Spray Antiqua – This new kid on the blog is becoming rather popular in the wedding industry and I can see exactly why! Unusual choice, but does work considerably well in a coral colour palette.
  3. Peony Coral Charm – One of the earlier growing varieties on the flower market, peony coral charm is a colour changing variety, starting in a vibrant coral tone and changing into a soft peach/yellow shade overtime. Simply magical!
  4. Rose Lady Margaret – Aside from Miss Piggy, Lady Margaret has to a favourite of mine, and a perfect coral rose colour shade. This rose has a medium head size (depending on the grade purchased).
  5. Chrysanthemum Spr. Grand Salmon – If you are looking for a long-lasting, cost effective and reliable flower, chrysanthemum is perfect for you. Typically considered as a funereal flower variety, which is a shame considering there are so many beautiful chrysanthemums in spray, santini and bloom that are worth a look for all types of floral designs!
  6. Rose Duett – Again, another unsusal choice, but it surpisingly works well in this colour palette. This rose is bi-coloured and a smaller headed variety lending itself to floral crowns, to compliment larger focal blooms and in the table centres.

To conclude, all of the above varieties can be found on the website here, along with more suggestions on our Flower Board for a coral colour palette.
