We are in the middle of summer here in Yonkers, and there is no getting around the fact that the heat is on! That’s why we love the selection of the delphinium flower for the birth flower of July – this cool and serene flower takes the edge off a hot day and adds a sense of refreshing relief. The gorgeous blue delphinium is the perfect choice for all your July birthday celebrations – including if you are welcoming a new baby boy! Blossom Flower Shops has the summer flowers you need for all your special events this season.
Fire and Ice – Unlike the cool blue birth flower, the birthstone of July is as hot as the temperature outdoors – the fiery red ruby represents July celebrants.
Delphinium flowers are primarily recognized by their many variations of blue, although there are also white, yellow, purple, red and pink varieties available. The flowers grow in elegant plumes on elongated stems, and can be as tall as six feet when growing in the wild. This gorgeous flower is also known as larkspur, and surprisingly, is a member of the buttercup family.
Delphinium is often utilized in floral designs to add vertical height and a unique blue color – in fact, it is one of the very few species of flower that grows in naturally in true blue shades.
(Another popular summer variety, the hydrangea, also grows a blue flower.)
Because they create a dramatic backdrop, delphinium are rarely seen displayed on their own – however, they would definitely make a striking birthday bouquet for your loved one!
For all of your July birthdays – or any other time you want to add the unique shade of blue to your floral bouquets – ask the designers at Blossom Flower Shops to add some amazing delphinium. We deliver this beautiful flower across Yonkers, White Plains, and throughout Westchester County, along with your very best wishes to those you love.
