Ethical British Autumn Flowers
The colour and flowers of Autumn are truly magical and we love them!
The leaves are starting to change & the golden light make their colours stunning, the days become shorter and we all getting ready for the change of season. Winter walks followed by cosy fires await!
Autumnal blooms colour are definitely reflecting the changing mood of the season, rich reds, refreshing orange, golden shades and crimson & shades of brown.
The Autumn flowers stars:
The national flower of Mexico, dahlias bloom all the way through autumn, keeping us happy once the flood of summer colour starts to wane. The varieties can look very different - expect to find dahlias that look like pom poms, others that look like spiky stars and some that are so big (think 35cm in diameter!) they are known as ‘dinner plate dahlias’.
Dahlias are thought to represent dignity and gratitude. They aren’t scented, but they make up for this by flowering in every colour. The trendy Cafe au Lait dahlia is a pale peachy cream that looks incredible teamed with blush roses and burgundy amaranthus.
The aster is a unique daisy-like wildflower that’s known for its star-shaped flower head. Aster are thought to represent love and wisdom. With a rich history in Greek mythology, it’s said that the aster was created by the tears of the Greek goddess, Astraea.
One day, she was so upset by how few stars there were in the dark sky, that she began to cry. As she wept, her tears fell to the ground and turned into star-shaped aster flowers. Thus, the flower was named after her, with aster meaning star.
Aster are also known in the floristry industry as "frost flowers" thanks to their strength in growing during the cold month of the year.
The name chrysanthemum comes from a combination of the Greek words chrysos, meaning gold, and anthos, meaning flower.
There are several types of chrysanthemums available today and, depending on the variety, they flower during different times of the year.
Chrysanthemums are associated with optimism, wealth, friendship and peace.
Chrysanthemums were first brought to Japan by Buddhist monks in 400 AD. This flower was so loved that they added it to the Imperial Crest.
The Japanese are known to still celebrate this flower by hosting annual exhibitions. According to feng shui,( the Chinese art of connecting and balancing our interiors with the energy of the natural world to improve the energy of our living spaces) chrysanthemums are associated with happiness and joy.
The name crocosmia comes from the Greek words for saffron (krokos) and smell (osme), because dipping dry crocosmia flowers in water apparently releases a saffron-like aroma.
Common names for crocosmia are coppertips and falling stars.
Crocosmia is one of the plants that originated from Africa, but are cultivated all over the world.
The cultivated diversity is enormous with more than 400 varieties available in the world.
