Whether you are planning an August wedding or unique floral arrangements for your home or any special day, choosing flowers that are in season means the blooms are grown and cut when they are naturally thriving, so they will be at their most beautiful.
As winter comes to an end and spring begins to bloom, we’re spoilt for choice at this time of year. We’ve rounded up a list of flowers that are in season in August to help you put together your bridal bouquet or other special arrangements.
Soft and romantic, ranunculus flowers create the same dramatic effect as the eternally elegant peony when bundled together in a bouquet or vase. Available in a range of beautiful colours such as white, bright yellow, burgundy, red, purple and pink, these versatile blooms are adored by everyone and for good reason.
The signature bloom of Coco Chanel, camellias are known as the ‘queen of the winter flowers'. With big, waxy petals, these pretty blooms come in an array of colours ranging from crimson to crisp white, blushed pinks and soft corals.
A stunning type of protea, the Venus protea is bright and bold in a stunning cherry red hue with white rims around each petal. This hardy bloom is a great choice if you are looking for an extra long-lasting flower and it’s also great for drying out and preserving.
Wattle trees start to bloom in August and we just can’t get enough of the sunshine yellow flower. Perfect for adding a pop of colour and bringing a bouquet to life, wattles are ideal for decorating your home or for a rustic, country wedding arrangement.
Geraldton Wax Flower
Shaped like a daisy, these tiny native flowers come in various shades of pink, purple and white. Wax flowers are wonderful filler flowers, with each stem containing many blooms. They also look stunning on their own bunched in a vase.
Boasting a delicate scent, sweet peas are a popular choice for bridal bouquets. Featuring ruffled, paper petals, sweet peas come in various candy colours and are a timeless classic.
Springing to life in August, daffodils are bright and make us so very happy and cheerful. Always a popular choice for gifting or for adding some colour to your home décor, daffodils are sure to bring a smile to anyone’s face.
With little star-shaped blooms, hyacinths feature a bold scent and come in a range of beautiful hues such as lilac, wine, white, lemon, pink and coral.
Cherry blossoms herald the arrival of spring and represent good fortune, love and affection. Originating in Japan, these celebrated blooms are striking when placed in large bunches and are equally as beautiful when used as accents in bouquets.
