The Greens of Summer

August Birthstone is Peridot. That means Green. Do not discount the green flowers, because they are vibrant and cool. Many of them look so nice in a bouquet and using the different shades of the summer green flowers in an arraignment means another layer of contrast to the other flowers. Summer is the season of flowers and the green ones are worth looking at, worth holding and breathing in.

This is a great flower guide for brides looking for unique color palettes and unusual flowers for their wedding.
