What blooms in early July in New England?

Asked by LauratheRockStar (182 points ) April 11th, 2009

Okay folks well . . . I got engaged! Yay!!

So, I’m told that i’m supposed to pick my wedding colors based on the flowers that I want to have. Okay. Well I’m getting married on July 4, 2010 (yes you’re all invited) in Massachusetts (save the date).

So . . . what’s in season in New England in July?

A quick google search was fruitless – though I do tend to be a dolt about these things. I’d like our colors to be green and white but . . . apparently I have to back this up with some sort of research.

Any leads?

Thanks!
Laura (and Mellissa)

Don’t know if this is any good to you. Might point you in the right direction at least.

Congrats by the way.

EDIT: Would this suit?

I would think that florists would have a wide range of hot house flowers available of almost any type you desire. But most gardens would likely have things like daisies, hollyhocks, dahlias, marigolds, geraniums, agapanthus, echinacea, fuschia, calendula, foxglove, oh, the list goes on and on.

The flowers that florist use are imported from other states, and in some instances, other countries, so local availability is less important than grower availability. Unless you’re having an out-of-doors wedding, in which case, local blooming will be important…

did I mention chrysanthemums, clematis, cosmos, gladiolus, oh there’s just so many. I’d say pick your color first and then look into what flowers would match.

naked ladies, also known as eternal lilies, bloom in July. They are light pink trumpet shaped flowers on naked green stems, hence the name. Some varieties of daylilies bloom in July. Daisies bloom almost throughout the whole growing season. July is a good month for flowers, if my yard is any indication. Try googling summer flowers, or checking some horticultural/gardening websites, they usually say when flowers bloom.
