Recently I sent out a twitter request & email to our mailing list, asking for input on seven different questions. Thank you to everyone who sent in their replies!!
What’s the most requested flower this wedding season?
By Rose of Sharon Floral Designs of Arkansas
Our brides have definitely joined the peony obsession, especially in their bouquets. When peonies are not within their budget, our brides love English Garden Roses as a substitute. Orchids are also highly requested and used within our special event designs.

We are always behind the trends in South Texas. Succulents are huge now, everybody is using them.
Sheri of Blumen Meisters, Texas
Probably the most requested flower this season is garden roses.
Kris of The KRISanthemums, Oregon
It’s become a running joke for us this year that if it doesn’t have dusty miller in it, it’s not a wedding. (We have our share of succulents, too.)
Gerry & Rebecca of Petal’s Edge Floral Design, Virginia & Washington DC
Most requested flower? The Coral Charm Peony. No surprise there.
Sue of White Magnolia Designs, Washington DC
Succulent, followed by hydrangea, ranunculus and garden roses.
Lora of Sophisticated Floral Designs, Oregon
Peonies. I’m starting to not like them as much. The growers cannot seem to meet the demand and a lot of the plants are inmature leading to small buds and high prices. Let’s also add to this list anything blush and muted colors.

The most requested flower this past spring was ranunculus. A close second was peony. For this summer the most requested flower is dahlia.
