THE FLOWERS

Anemones - Among the best known summer flowers, the anemone grows from a bulb and has  parsley-like leaves. The large showy blossoms on stalks can grow up to 20 cm high and the flowers come in a variety of colors such as scarlet, crimson, blue, purple, and white with its characteristic dark center- always the showstopper.

 

Ranunculus - The ranunculus is a species of buttercup, native to the eastern Mediterranean region.  It is a perennial plant that has basal three-lobed leaves. The flowers are 3-5 cm in diameter and vary in color from burgundy, red, pink, orange, yellow or white. Elegant and romantic, a must have in weddings and bridal bouquets- or simply arranged in a vase at home.

 

Delphinium  -   The plant is topped with a cluster of many flowers that vary in color from   purple and blue, to pink or white.  It was used by Native Americans and European settlers to make blue dye.
