Roses are dead, violets are through. If you’re looking for real trends in flowers these days, they’re more rustic in feel and impossible to pronounce.

Ranunculus look a lot like full bloom roses but have a lovely softness to them. They come in just about every shade of the rainbow.

Anemones are white flowers with a pop of navy blue in the middle. Whether they’re displayed as a single bloom, or part of a larger arrangement, they’re unique enough to spark a conversation.

What can you say about peonies? Gorgeous, fragrant, and so large you need very few of them to fill a vase. Viva la spring!
