What’s Blooming in SoMd this Summer?

062413-sunflowerWant to use in-season flowers in your Southern Maryland wedding? Here are three flowers in bloom locally this summer. You might even be able to find them at your favorite farmer’s market!

Black-Eyed Susans

Black-eyed Susans are the official flower of the state of Maryland, and their bright yellow and black is a bold color combination for summer weddings. They’re easily found throughout the state and make a great accent flower for your bouquet. Don’t you think they’d look stunning against black bridesmaid gowns?


Huge sunflowers are easy to find at farmer’s markets once summer is in full swing. They come in a variety of sizes – from huge to more demure – and colors – like yellow and various shades of orange. It only takes a few of the huge sunflowers to make a dramatic bouquet for country, rustic, or outdoor weddings.


Delicate asters come in a variety of colors, and they’re happy to play a supporting role in your bouquet alongside other summer blooms. But, if you really love them, make the star-shaped flowers the main attraction! Sizes and colors vary, so it’s easy to add variety.
