July’s Flower is the Larkspur

F1The Larkspur is the official flower of July. It is a great flower to enjoy this summer in many types of flower arrangements and bouquets for a special gift or even to just decorate your home.

About the Larkspur

The larkspur is part of the buttercup family known as Ranunculaceae. Their flowers are complex in a similar way to orchids with petals and sepals.

The flowers are irregularly shaped and tend to bloom in a vertical grouping along the upper end of the plant’s stalk.F2

Colors include everything from white to blue to violet. There are also other colors, including red and pink among the other species. They go nicely with many other types of summer flowers, including roses, sunflowers, lilies and more.

Some key facts about larkspur include:

  • Larkspur flowers, with tall spikes, make excellent cut flowers, particularly Consolida ambigua and Consolida orientalis varieties.
  • Larkspur flowers tend to be fragile and relatively short lived in the vase (under 7 days).
  • Larkspur flowers grow to their full potential in climates that have cool, moist summers.
  • The Larkspur plant is toxic because its stem and seeds contain alkaloids.
  • Larkspur look identical to perennial Delphiniums.

Our Larkspur Flower Arrangements

We have a number of summer flower arrangements that feature the larkspur like these beauties:

  • Sapphire Miracle offers white larkspur along with blue delphinium and lilies.F3
  • Be Mine features larkspur, carnations, miniature roses and lilies in a uniquely shaped glass vase.
  • Hugs is a wicker basket flower arrangement that has been filled with larkspur, chrysanthemums, and sunflowers along with a plush teddy bear.

We offer other special flower arrangements with larkspur or you can work with our floral design team to incorporate this July flower into a custom flower arrangement.

Come in and see what we have in the way of summer flowers or browse our website so you can give them as a gift or enjoy them yourself.

A Centurion Celebration with 100 Roses

IMG_20150717_181240859We recently held a local contest on Facebook to give away a summer flower arrangement. The Columbus winner decided to pay it forward and asked that the flower arrangement be given to someone else that could use a smile.

Well, we decided to go a few steps beyond that. Instead of just one arrangement, we decided to take 100 roses to Willow Brook Christian Village, a senior community in Delaware, Ohio this past Friday.image001

A friend of ours goes to Willow Brook and often does karaoke with the seniors there. We often take corsages for the special ladies from our Columbus flower shop. The ladies at Willow Brook are always so pleased to receive corsages and mention how beautiful the flowers are.

We picked July 17th because we heard that one of the residents, Mary, was celebrating her 100th birthday while her friend, Belvadel, would soon celebrate turning 104!   This was the perfect opportunity to bring in 100 roses to mark such a special birthday. It’s quite an accomplishment to reach the century mark and even surpass it like these two ladies.

As you can see from the pictures, everyone had an amazing night of karaoke and fun while also enjoying their beautiful roses. It was a special moment for us too as it reminded us of the power nature has to brighten someone’s day and that it is the small things we do in life that often have the greatest impact.pic 3

Our Community Spirit

It doesn’t get much better than this when we can participate in a special event where we see the spirit of community, sharing, and the ability to be present for people in action.Mary  Belvadel

This is a hallmark of Flowerama and something that we focus on every chance we get whether it is a community event, getting to know our neighbors throughout Columbus, or participating in a special charity event.

Your Time for Roses

Be sure to come in and pick up your very own roses now that summer is in full swing. We have an abundance of premium long-stem roses that you can enjoy in your home or office or give to someone special in your life.
