Fresh from the Market

One of the more interesting flowers this week is coxcomb celosia. It has this great velvet-y brain like texture! Available through most of the summer and fall, it comes in shades of red, orange, green, and pink. The light pink really looks brainy!

In addition, this week we also have:

sunflowers – flame, solid yellow, and the traditional yellow with brown center, locally grown at Porter Farms
purple iris
red ginger
lady’s mantle
gypsy dianthus in 5 colors
burgundy scabiosa
light peachy yellow garden roses – smell wonderful!
light green spider mums
white hydrangea
purple and pink Dutch hydrangea
bells of Ireland
didiscus/ blue lace flower
yellow kangaroo paws
purple dendrobium orchids
peach mini callas
broom corn – locally grown
yellow freesia
“Naked Lady” amaryllis
hypericum berries in brown and red
baby green hydrangeas
