February Flower Spotlight of the Month: The Larkspur

larkspur flower spotlight florist in pasadena tx 1

If you're going to be celebrating a flower of the month, then there's no better flower for Larkspur. It's such a gorgeous flower, especially for this month of February when anyone who loves their garden is just itching to start planting. It's almost spring, but not quite there! 

Unfortunately, as beautiful as these flowers can be, they're not fit for everywhere. If you're going to be tracking down this beautiful flower, either for your garden or as part of a bouquet, there are some things you're going to need to know.

Growing Climate for Larkspur

Larkspur is the common name for the flowers of genus Delphinium, which contains 250 different varieties. But they all share several common factors (that's what being part of a genus means).

They grow best in areas with cool, moist summers. So most of the southern half of the United States is right out, as is southern Europe and the Mediterranean area. At least, if you want them in your garden. You can always go greenhouse.

They should also be planted in spring, and you should ensure that their soil never dries out. This is why the summers need to be moist. In addition, there are some other important considerations.

The Fragility Of Genus Delphinium

Larkspur are long lived, but quite fragile. For example, they do not respond well to transplanting, so if you're going to greenhouse them you'll need to make certain to use individual pots for each one. They also don't live very long after being cut, lasting only about a single week. But that doesn’t stop us from using them in bouquets and admiring their beauty.

They need moist soil at all times, as well, meaning they're a bit of a water hog. This means that you're going to want to avoid them if your area has any kind of history of drought. Not only that, but larkspur have hollow stalks. For those, you'll need to use stakes to ensure that you won't have snapped flowers.

That said, they are particularly long lived flowers. After the first frost, you can cut their stems down to about a single inch above the ground. Doing so, and then watering heavily and ensuring plenty of sun once the frost melts away, allows the larkspur to grow strong again.

Why Do You Love Flowers?

Flowers of every kind are beautiful, and each one is a special, unique gift that brightens the area and brings the smell of a fresh spring into the home. That's why so many people work so hard to grow a variety of flowers. From interior design to potpourri, flowers are amazing.

But make sure that you don't try the larkspur flowers unless you're a bit more seasoned. They're wonderful flowers, but they do require a bit of care and work. But as long as you're prepared for that, they can be an absolutely gorgeous addition to any garden or greenhouse, helping make the place feel more alive.

Floral Designer's Day: Its History and How to Celebrate

Every year on February 28th,  floral designers everywhere celebrate Floral Designer's Day. Maybe this was because of Valentine’s Day. Maybe not, so I did a little research because even though half of my family is in the floral business, I had no idea this day existed.

Think Way Back When to 1995...

Officially designated as National Floral Design Day, February 28th was originally declared by Massachusetts Governor William F. Weld back in 1995, although the tradition began forty years earlier.

Springing from a desire to honor Carl Rittner, a pioneer in the art of floral design, the people of Rittner School of Floral Design decided that a day honoring the beautiful art of floral design-and the creative people who practice it-was long overdue. They chose the birthday of the school's founder, Carl Rittner, as the ideal day to celebrate.

The History of Floral Design

Floral design has been an integral form of art throughout the ages. It can trace its routes back to the days of ancient Egyptian offerings to their gods. As designs and styles changed over thousands of years, this art form has evolved to today's modern concept of floral design.

These lovely designs boost our mood and lift our spirits, whether the design be simple  delivered arrangements meant to lift the mood of someone who is ill, or an incredible profusion of color in flower-bedecked parade floats or elaborate, exquisite displays of elegant blossoms seen at extravagant social events.

Floral designers have great attention to detail and a trained eye for color, from expansive gardens in historic manors to a bridal bouquet that incorporates the bridal party's color scheme. Through floral design, one can transform a space and complement its architectural features.

Florists, an Unsung Hero

Often working behind the scenes, floral designers-commonly referred to as florists-add that natural touch of beauty that so often serves as the important backdrop to may occasions. As a multi-billion-dollar industry, floral design has beautified our lives, enhanced our events, and brightened our days. After so many years of being the unsung heroes of countless special moments or special events, it seems appropriate that these talented individuals should be recognized, and have their day of honor observed.

How can you celebrate  National Floral Designer's Day? If you are a floral designer, have a special poster made for your shop or place of business, and arrange an extra-special floral piece for display as well. If you are a floral wholesaler, perhaps offer special discounts or incentives for the week surrounding that special day.

For regular folks, consider showing your favorite floral designer a little love by treating yourself to a special bouquet, giving the designer a personal greeting card, or even say a simple "thank you" for all the dedication they show their craft.


You could also work in your garden, paint a picture of flowers, dabble in your own floral design by drawing a picture of an arrangement or creating your own with flowers from your garden. Whatever you do, be sure to take a picture and tag it on social media with #FloralDesignDay.

Whether you celebrate the art form through making a bouquet of your own, with a painting of flowers, through using floral fabric, or by working in your garden, be sure to take a moment on National Floral Design Day to appreciate the innate beauty of the flower, and the creative talent of those who arrange them.

I'll just go hug a few of my favorite floral designers, there is more than a couple in my family!

Top 5 Common Questions About Orchid Flowers

Orchids are one of the most beautiful flowers that are commonly cultivated. There are two major ways to own an orchid. The first is to grow them and create a beautiful orchid planter which takes care and patience. The second is to purchase it from a florist. Many people understand it is easy to get an orchid delivery though they may not know exactly which shops offer the service. Here are a few frequently asked questions in regards to the beautiful orchid flower.

What does an orchid look-alike?

Orchids are characterized by five petals on each blossom. Then, a plant may have multiple blossoms overall with all having a similar appearance. Orchids can come in many different colors as well as bloom at different points in the year.

Can I change and orchid color?

This is a bit of a tricky question. While trying to change a colored orchid may not be the best idea, it is possible to change just about any white flower to a different color by watering it with plant & flower coloring. The dye in the food coloring will slowly change the petals to the desired hue. This can be an easy way to add color to a previously bland flower. The only problem is that it must be done while the orchid is still alive. If you purchased a cut orchid vs an orchid planter from a florist this option will not be available.

Why will not my orchid blossoms not open?

Sometimes orchid planters get impatient. Many of the larger varieties of orchids take months to blossom. If this is the case simply performing the standard care for your plant will eventually result in the blossoms opening. There are certain health problems that can prevent an orchid from blossoming that will likely be apparent on the rest of the plant as well. If the plant looks to be healthy, you will likely need to wait only a short while longer.

What should I do with my orchid planter?

This question is for orchid planters. One of the crucial steps into promoting good health of your newly acquired orchid is to repot it into your own pot once it is overgrown. While this isn’t strictly necessary for the current health of the plant, it allows you to inspect the orchid as a whole including the roots rather than just simply judging heath by the petals. If you see any dead or rotten roots prune them while you are repotting in order to promote the best health for your new plant.

What do I do with a cut orchid flower?

The key to caring for cut orchids is similar to that of any other type of cuts flowers. In order to keep it lasting as long as possible you want to place it into a jar partially filled with water. The water will keep the cut stem hydrated and keep the plant looking as fresh as possible for quite a while. It is important to note that the cut flower will eventually wilt as a potted plant will not. If you are receiving an orchid delivery, try to ask for the flowers to be placed in a vase unless you have one already.

If you are looking for a beautiful orchid delivery, our top orchids Houston florist can help you. Whether you want a bouquet of cut orchids or an orchid planter, Enchanted Florist can help you get it to the one you love. Give us a call (832)850-7677 or order online!
