Seasonal flowers by month
Many types of flowers bloom all year round and are always at our disposal for bouquets and compositions. However, numerous flower species are available only in specific periods. Check out the seasonal flowers by month and learn when you can purchase your favourite types.
First of all, it should be mentioned that today the list of seasonal flowers is much shorter than it used to be. Fortunately, nowadays, we are able to grow many types of flowers all year round. Among these incredible flowers are such species as Alstroemeria, Roses, Anthurium, Bird of Paradise Flowers, Calla Lilies, Craspedia, Dendrobium, Dianthus, Ginger, Magnolia, Orchids, Stephanotis, or Yarrow.
Few of the seasonal flowers tend to thrive during cold months, but there are still some amazing ones. Amaryllis is one type of flower that becomes available during December or January and lasts all the way to March. Of course, throughout the winter months, Hyacinthus and some Anemones are at our disposal as well. In January, we can still enjoy Brunia, and throughout February, Snowdrops and Daffodils may also start to come out.
As we enter the spring, we can gradually see that some varieties of Irises start to bloom as early as March. With the onset of warmer weather, we can also count on the appearance of Bells, Violets and Tulips. In April, we may slowly begin to enjoy the Peony season, which lasts until the middle of June. Of course, the best time for these flowers still comes in May! At the end of spring, we can begin to notice Carnation flowers, which usually bloom well into the autumn months. May is also when we may see and smell Lilac flowers that will stay with us during June as well.
Turn of spring and summer comes with a wide variety of seasonal flowers. These are good months for fans of Lily of the Valley, Freesia, Sweet Pea, Veronica, Lavender, Dahlia, and many others. In June, we can finally see Alstroemeria, which blooms until the first frost occurs. Lilies tend to blossom from early summer to fall, depending on the type. Right in the middle of summertime, we can finally enjoy the Sunflower season in the UK. Those bright flowers usually bloom all the way to early autumn. Hydrangea is yet another seasonal flower that starts its flourishing in summer, and it can last until fall.
As the weather cools down, it seems that fewer and fewer seasonal flowers appear by month. However, in September, October, and November, we can still enjoy such beautiful species as Chrysanthemum, Rudbeckia, Scabiosa, Physalis, or Achillea. During those autumn months, we may still see Fuchsia or Geranium as well.
Of course, we should remember that experienced florists can grow many flowers all year round or import them from warmer countries. Because of that, customers don’t have to be limited by the seasonal availability of cut flowers and can enjoy floral arrangements that include their favourites no matter the time.
