Friday Floral – Thistle!

The blue thistle may be considered a weed in the gardening world, but it is a much loved design element in the floral industry. The distinctive snowflake-shaped bloom of the thistle contains small steel blue or white colored flowers with a cone center. In nature these unique flowers bloom from July through August, but they are readily available through our flower wholesalers all year long. Take a look below and see just a few reason why we love this plant so much.
