Fresh from the Market

Summer time brings the us the smaller, more delicate wildflower types of flowers. This week we feature this cranberry colored scabiosa. It's also known as pincuchion flowers because the unopened blossoms resemble a pincushion tightly packed with round headed pins. Not to be confused with pin cushion protea, a totally different tropical flower!

In addition, we also have this week:
bells of Ireland
pink limonium
asclepias
hypericum berries
pink hydrangeas
dianthus
solid yellow sunflowers in two sizes
mokara orchids
campanula in pink and purple - Veriflora - sustainably grown
trachellium "Jade"
leucodendron
stock
lavender
red ginger
phlox in raspberry
yellow james storeii orchids
