What Makes a Fall Flower?

Fall is in full force! By now, you’re probably used to the intense change in the weather (especially here in New England), and you’re probably either happy or sad about the return of everything pumpkin spice. Here at KaBloom, we have to adapt to the change in season too, and not just by bundling up! With the changing weather, you may also notice a change in our seasonal collection as we gear up for the whole new collection of blooms. Don’t recognize all these new fall flowers? Well, we’ve got you covered!

Alstroemeria

Those yellow flowers in our popular All-Spice Roses arrangement are Alstroemeria, which are also known as the Peruvian Lily. These flowers are a symbol of friendship and a timeless classic, and typically begin to bloom in the late spring or early summer. That means that they are ready just in time for fall. These blooms are a great option if you prefer less fragrant flowers as they don’t have an overpowering scent, and still look gorgeous in any fall arrangement.

Asiatic Lilies  

Looking at its name, you might be surprised to hear that the Asiatic Lily is grown in the United States and Canada, as well as the Netherlands and New Zealand! This flower grows in a wide variety of colors, which makes it so versatile, and their large hearty blossoms are perfect for many of our fall arrangements. Our bouquets, including

Tangerine Lilies, the Lilies’ Harvest, and the Gold Rust Lilies and Roses feature our seasonal favorites!Sometimes the petals have secondary colors, or little specks of color, which makes these flowers a more dynamic and special autumn treat for decor and gifts.

Roses

You’re probably thinking: Roses aren’t a fall flower. Well, you are right…kind of. But, many species of roses only bloom once or twice a year, and that often is in the fall. The wonderful thing about roses is the variety that they come in. You don’t only have those romantic red Roses for Valentine’s day, but a wide variety, like orange spray roses found in our Sunset Iris, Gold Rust Lilies and Roses, and All-Spice Roses arrangements. We also use spray roses, which grow many buds on one stem, which helps give the arrangement a more robust burst of autumn color!

Sometimes, that golden yellow does look like freshly fallen leaves, and other times that vibrant orange looks like a late-fall sunset, but now you know it’s more than that. Our designers take great care in creating arrangements that include a wide variety of different blooms, which change every season. Before you know it, you’ll be seeing a whole new variety of flowers going into your favorite holiday arrangements! Stay tuned for an update!
