I have been getting lots of questions about what's in season in August and September, and often hearing wishes for peonies at that time of year. . . to all the peony lovers out there, getting married in August and September, your best best for a big, gorgeous, subtly colored local Vermont flower at that time of year is the dahlia. Or some lisianthus. Peonies are almost impossible to get in late summer, but dahlias and lisianthus are booming and just waiting for your Vermont wedding flowers!
Other flowers abundant in late summer:
- Foxgloves (from my garden anyway)
- Snapdragons-- they come in much nicer, open double shapes and subtle colors these days
- Sweet Peas
The list could continue, but that's pretty good for now! One wonderful thing about Vermont weddings is the seasonality of our location. And wedding flowers in Vermont can take advantage of this beautifully. Let me know here if you want more info!
