Seasonal Flowers for Fall and Winter - Columbus Monthly

Instead of: Peonies Try: Dahlias Peonies were once only available for a short time in the spring. Now, thanks to Alaskan greenhouses, Meacham says, they're in-season again in mid to late summer. That doesn't mean fall and winter brides need to cut the incredibly popular peony out of their plans, but they should be prepared to pay a price. "Winter peonies are going to be extremely costly, as they are flown in to the U.S. from far-away farms in the Southern Hemisphere," Conyers says. "They aren't the most economical choice, but we can get them from other parts of the world if we need to." In-season peonies, Conyers says, should cost around $8 to $9 per stem. During the off-season you can expect to pay closer to $15 to $20 per stem. Meacham offers the similarly lush and bulbous dahlia as an alternative seasonal statement flower for fall. "The Café au Lait dahlia is especially beautiful for weddings," Mecham says, adding that they're available from local growers into October. This generous, dense bloom comes in other classic wedding colors-dusty peach, ivory, champagne and creamy pink-and has an elegant, ombre-like fade throughout its layered, geometric petals. Instead of: Strictly seasonal themes or color palettes Try: Blues, white-on-white, greens Why stick to a season at all? "Brides are having a lot of fun with their colors and breaking from the traditional ‘holiday' or ‘winter' colors," Conyers says. "They're doing what feels right for their wedding, even if it's not what you'd expect to see at that time of year." Blush pink, whites and heavy greens are still trending no matter what the weather, Meacham adds. Indeed, a good florist can make your wedding colors come to life no matter the season. "We're seeing a large range of colors and blooms being used in the winter," Conyers says. "We had a lot of fun this past winter with bright whites, crisp greens and a touch of blue." If you like the traditional red holiday color palette, consider adding some contemporary fullness to it, she says: Mix a touch of blush with bright and deep reds and a strong burgundy. White-on-white also makes a big impact, lending a high-end feel to a winter wonderland. Texture is key here: All-white arrangements of hydrangea with other textured flowers, Conyers suggests, subtly adds a richness to the look that can take it from simple to stunning. Instead of: Pastels Try: Saturated jewel tones Let the spring brides keep the all-light looks. A traditional range of fall wedding colors (think dark reds and burnt oranges) is still hot, and florists "tend to see more corals, yellows and oranges in the fall," Meacham says. There's no denying the staying power of the blush-colored wedding trend, though, and if a light flor...

Jeff Mitton: Elaborate elephant's heads flowers require buzz pollination

Yankee Boy Basin and Governor Basin above Ouray. Elephant's heads are found in subalpine and alpine habitats in western mountains from New Mexico to Alaska and throughout Canada, except for Newfoundland and Nova Scotia. They were first described from Greenland, where they are found in one or a few tiny populations. The common name elephant's heads aptly describes the shape of the flowers. Each has a bulbous, silvery head, flared and draping ears and a curving trunk held high. Inflorescences are columns composed of dozens of flowers. A plant may have one or many inflorescences and attain a height of 30 inches. Their unusual flower shape has attracted the attention of pollination biologists, who discovered that this species is an obligate outcrosser, incapable of self-pollination. In Colorado, the primary pollinators are at least seven species of bumble bees in the genus Bombus. Advertisement Pollination biologists described specific bumble bee behaviors and floral morphology that convincingly suggest a long-term pattern of coevolution between bees and flowers. The flower has two lateral petals that suggest ears, and a median lower petal. Two upper petals are fused dorsally but not ventrally to form a galea (the elephant's domed forehead) with a rostral extension (the elephant's trunk). The style, or female portion of the flower, extends through the trunk so that the stigma, which receives pollen, protrudes from the end of the trunk. The four anthers are hidden in the galea and they shed pollen through a small ventral opening at the base of the elephant's trunk. How does the bee coax pollen from the anthers, which are inside the galea, or the elephant's head? It lands on the trunk, with its antennae reaching toward the galea. It then uses its mandibles to grasp the median ridge on the...
