Floral arrangements vary with seasons

Stunning floral arrangements are available year round.

Although one's favorite flower may be more widely available in a certain season, many flowers are available throughout the year.

Best-selling author, lifestyle expert and television personality Martha Stewart recently wrote in the Detroit News that each season provides great opportunities for arrangements, baskets and bouquets made from fresh flowers.

Stewart wrote that the amaryllis is her favorite winter flower. In addition to growing these bulbs in her greenhouses, she arranges cut blooms in bowls, often with other flowers.

In the springtime, she displays bulb flowers such as tulips, hyacinths and bleeding hearts in many different types of containers. The many colors and varieties of tulips make for wonderful displays, she said.

Peonies, irises, roses, lilies, delphiniums, astilbes and annuals are among Stewart's favorite summertime blooms.

"Few of us think to use clematis as cut flowers, but they are excellent as such," she wrote. "Mixed with hosta leaves, irises and love-in-a-mist seed heads, the flowers are superb."

In the fall, Stewart creates arrangements using unusual blooms such as striped dahlias in orange and white, papery Chinese lanterns stripped of all leaves and dill gone to yellow flower heads.

In addition to flowers, she incorporates leaves, grasses and seedpods into her arrangements.
