“There is no real need for decorations when throwing a barbecue party – let the summer garden, in all its vibrant and luscious splendor, say it all” – Pippa Middleton
Summer flowers have a magnificent aura all their own. Rich colors, cheerful bouquets and a sense of wild beauty are enough to brighten anyone’s day. They exude carefree happiness and bring vibrancy to any location. So as we enter the summer months, we at Nanz & Kraft Florist wanted to share with you some of our favorite summer blooms.
Perhaps the most quintessential summer flower is, of course, the sunflower. With stalks reaching towards the sky and a brilliant yellow head constantly seeking to bask in the sun’s rays, the iconic sunflower practically represents summer. It also is a classically American flower, being one of the very few that was first cultivated by Native American Indians right here in North America. The flower has been used for medicinal purposes and as a food source, and grows easily, providing thousands of seeds for the next season. As its roots do an excellent job of extracting water from the soil, it grew exceptionally well across Midwestern plains, and still can be seen for miles in country fields across this country. Their bright yellow color lends to its meaning as a cheerful flower, one used for encouragement and well wishing. Nanz & Kraft’s Golden Sunflowers is the perfect arrangement to bring sunshine to those you love.

The large heads are made up of hundreds of petals of varying hues and shades, making each individual Gerbera a veritable color wheel all on its own; assembling multiple colored Gerbera ensure that your bouquet is a vibrant rainbow.
