LILIES– Lilies are popping up all over the place . Lilies are the most common of the summer flowers. Most lilies are able to survive with little care and are drought tolerant plants.

CALLA LILY– Calla lilies bloom color may be pink, violet/lavender, dark purple/black or white/near white. With this many variations, you’re sure to find one to compliment any occasion. Calla Lilies are very popular wedding flowers!

GLADIOLAS– Sometimes called the sword lily, these lilies stand tall in a vase arrangement. Gladiolas are a great way to add height and color to any arrangement.

HYDRANGEA–Probably the favorite of all summer flowers, the hydrangea’s blooms definitely have a commanding presence. Hydrangeas have two types of flower arrangements: mop-head flowers are the large round flowers resemblingĀ  pom-poms. In contrast, lacecap flowers have round flat flower heads with a center core of fertile flowers surrounded by outer rings of sterile flowers.
