Following on from yesterdays post, here are the final 5 of my top ten green flowers.
5 – Viburnum Opulus
Each viburnum flower head is a cluster of lots of tiny pale green flowers. There are several heads on a stem and each heads delicately bobs about. Their soft green colour looks very natural mixed in any type of arrangement from bouquets to table centres and larger arrangements.
Gladioli has made a come back in recent years with lots of gorgeous new colours. The acid green gladioli look anything but traditional. The flower stems are very long and suit large designs like pedestal arrangements or tall vase designs.
If you want an exotic feel to your wedding flowers you can’t go wrong with orchids. These slipper orchids are exotic and beautiful, mixed in a bouquet with other flowers or peeking above a table design. Cymbidium orchids and dendrobium orchids are also available in green. Orchids are one of the dearer flowers but they are striking and very long lasting. Cymbidium orchids are perfect for submerging in tall cylinder vases.
These impressive flowers also known as callas lilies, have huge heads that unravel as they open. They are very tall so are perfect for big vase arrangements or pedestal arrangements. They are a premium flower but they offer a big impact for their price tag and will last several weeks in a vase.
Roses had to be number one in the top ten, they are still one of the most popular wedding flowers. This rose is exactly what it’s name suggests, a huge green rose. Super Green is a type of rose known as a garden rose or cabbage rose as it has lots of petals and opens up very big. Roses work well in any wedding flowers from bouquets to arrangements.
