Date added: 17 Nov 2017 Seasonal Flowers: Winter

*

To quote Game of Thrones..
"Winter is Coming."

As the leaves start to drop from the trees and the cold wind begins nipping at our noses, you may start to think that fresh flowers are few and far between.

This couldn't be farther from the truth!

Although the time for Peonies and tulips may be behind us, the UK's landscapes - as well as our beautiful shop walls - are now lined with rich, gorgeous fresh flowers to brighten up and warm your homes.

Flowers like Roses, Alstromeria, Hypericum, Chrysanthemum and Bouvadia are just a few of the names that are positively bursting out from our arrangements!

Whether you are looking for the right flowers for your winter wedding, want to send a loved one a gift or simply for yourself to have in the home; there is such an abundance of choice this time of year!

We source our flowers from farmers all over the world; from The UK, to Holland, Columbia and even Africa! This gives us the freedom to supply our customers with a large selection of fresh blooms that they may not typically see this time of year on our British landscapes.

Some of the fresh flowers you are likely to find at Colonnade Florist this season are:

Chrysanthemum- Come as small headed Sprays, or as a large showy Bloom. 
Amaryllis-
Large Trumpet-Like Flower typically used as a statement piece. 
Gerbera- Come is a huge array of colours and can be a large head or the smaller headed 'Germini'

Orchid- Striking, waxy looking Orchids. Can be left on the stem or cut short and used in arrangements
Rose- Needs no introduction! Can be available in hundreds of different colours and varieties and is available all year round.

Hypericum- Available in Red, Green, White and Pink, these berries are very popular throughout Autumn and Winter
Veronica- A reall All year rounder, but particularly popular this season in deep purple or snowy white. 
Lisianthus- Another year round flower available in a selection of colours and shades to suit every season.

Hydrangea- A beautiful large headed flower best for making a design showy and spectacular
Brassica- Although technically a cabbage- these stunning flowers are often seen this time of year sprayed with glitter or 'snow' and look so festive. 
Carnation- Another flower which makes an appearance in every season!

Proving you don't have to stick to Reds, Oranges and Whites this time of year; almost all the flowers listed above can be found in other shades such as Pink, Purple, Green and even Blue! 

We are happy to create a design entirely bespoke to yourself or the person you are buying for no matter if they want Christmassy with Baubles or vibrant greens and oranges! 

So to those of you who suffer with the cold weather and the dark nights, make sure you pop on down to our little corner of the world for a bit of flower therapy.
