Ah, the enchanting season of fall! It’s the time rich colors, cozy vibes and the return of pumpkin spice lattés! In the world of fresh flowers, autumn is full of excitement as seasonal products become available allowing us to create rich designs full of texture. To get you in the spirit, we’ve put together a list of some of our favorite fresh flowers and accents that are perfect for this season.


Asiatic Lilies: Available year-round, the orange, yellow and burgundy are perfect for fall.

Bittersweet: Little orange berries on woody vines. Perfect as an accent, bundled in a vase or twined around a wreath.

Spider Mums: Spider mums are a perpetual favorite and available all year. They look like a firework burst in a bouquet, but the bronze mums are perfect in fall.

Cabbage and Kale: Available in summer and fall, ornamental cabbage and kale bring a large, natural element to your floral arrangements.
