It amazes me how quickly summer is passing. I can’t believe it’s already the end of July and time for our August 2014 calendar! I’ve had ranunculus on my mind a lot lately as we’ve recently launched a slew of new ranunculus products – new smaller box sizes, a garden rose and ranunculus package and the option to customize your own ranunculus colors. So, when it came time to decide what flower to feature this month, I had to go with ranunculus!
For those familiar with flower seasonality, you might be thinking – ranunculus in August? Well, you’re right that ranunculus are typically not available during summer months, but we’re lucky to work with some of the best farms in some of the best climates for growing flowers so we’re able to bring them to you all year round.
These beautiful blooms have grown in popularity and you’ll see them used in bridal bouquets and centerpieces since they pair so well with other flowers and come in a range of colors. Of course, they also look great on their own and I love how the hot pink ranunculuses featured in our calendar are so bright and cheery. I hope it helps perk up your August days!
Enjoy the rest of your summer and if you want to treat yourself to some ranunculus, just check out our ranunculus page!
PS. For those who want to know, the August birth flower is gladiolus. They’re beautiful blooms too, but we thought ranunculus would be much more fitting since we love them so much!
