Cerinthe, an Intriguing Flower for Springtime Weddings

Cerinthe made a quick debut at Springwell Gardens in 2013, but was accidentally overlooked for last spring. I am happy to report it will be back in the garden beds for 2015!
Cerinthe is such intriguing flower with its arching stems of irridescent blue and purple bells.
It adds a subtle statement in bouquets with other spring time bloomers such as anemones, ranunculus and Spanish Bluebells as in the picture below:
And in the next bouquet it provides a lovely draping collar beneath blooms of muscari, anemones, roses and hellebore.
 As folks seek out locally grown flowers I expect to see it offered more and more both as a wedding flower and in springtime bouquets at local farmer markets.  It will be available for springtime weddings at Springwell Gardens from late March through May.
