This is the season that nature adorns the landscape with exquisite color and texture. Here at Schaaf Floral, we love designing spring bouquets and floral arrangements that celebrate all the vibrant hues and tones of this season. From sunflowers to peonies to tropical blooms, there are many late spring flowers to consider – which is your favorite?
Before we welcome the summer, now is the ideal time to fill your home with the ambiance of spring flowers. Schaaf Floral is your hometown source in Fridley and Minneapolis for these beautiful blooms. (Shop the Spring Collection here).
The peony is one of the most beloved spring flowers and it is coming into season right now. (late spring/early summer) Known for its large, lush flower head and abundant petals, the peony makes an extravagant addition to any spring bouquets you may wish to send. The Big Hitter Arrangement, pictured here, features pink peonies, as well as other classic spring flowers such as gerbera daisies, tulips, hydrangea and traditional roses.
Quotable Quote: Upon seeing the peony flower for the first time, the famed explorer Marco Polo is reported to have exclaimed; “the roses here are as big as cabbages!”. The peony does resemble some varieties of garden roses, but its bloom can grow much larger – sometimes to over 10 inches in width.
Another popular late spring flower is the sunflower. This iconic flower is one of the most recognizable flowers in the world and is a favorite among floral designers. Its vivid color, broad flower head, and cheerful visage ensure that the sunflower is confident enough to stand on its own; but can be equally at home as a supporting blossom in a wildflower bouquet.
Birds-of-paradise, protea, orchids and anthurium are the basis for the Breathtaking Abundance arrangement, which celebrates the exotic beauty of these tropical flowers. Late spring into the beginning of summer is the ideal time to send these florals, whether to congratulate a graduate or send good wishes to the birthday girl. Tropical flowers showcase vivid colors, dramatic lines, and unique aesthetics not seen in traditional spring bouquets, and will make an impressive statement.
No matter your style, there are beautiful spring flowers just perfect for the occasion. If you aren’t sure which is best for you, call Schaaf Floral. We are happy to help you to determine the freshest in-season flowers for all of your arrangements and bouquets. From Fridley to downtown Minneapolis, we promise to deliver the very best.
