When I think of orange flowers I feel happy. My first thoughts are of warm summer days and bright orange Marigolds. Later in the season there are masses of Heleniums and other tall orangey/yellow perennials. But there are also some early spring flowers in all shades of orange… and that’s right when I feel that I need an intense shot of colour.
We have just heard the fantastic news that a friend is getting married in Autumn. She’s chosen a natural theme and would prefer to have locally grown flowers. She would like to stick to a budget and that got me thinking… What flowers would be suitable for the big day? More importantly which flowers can be easily and inexpensively grown by the brides family and friends.
