Flowers by Season in Gold Coast

FLOWER AVAILABILITY FROM SEASON TO SEASON

Australian Flower Availability from Season to Season

Whether you’re planning the perfect gift of a special someone’s favourite flowers, or searching for your dream wedding bouquet, timing is everything when it comes to flower availability. Being a beauty of the natural world, flowers are by season, and the time of year will dictate what is available to you at the time you need them. 

Interested in learning more about which favourite Australian florals are available when? We’ve prepared this blog to help the planners among us ensure that they can get the type of flowers they want or plan ahead to choose new favourites based on the season to avoid disappointment. Peonies are by far the most popular and preferred choice for modern brides, however not many brides are aware that Peonies are only in season for a select few months of the year. If your wedding does not fall within these months, a stunning substitute for Peonies are David Austin Roses. At LULLY & ROSE, our talented and experienced florists know how to work with the seasons to make your floral dreams come true and would be delighted to help you. 

It’s one of our core values to support local, so LULLY & ROSE will always purchase from Australian flower farmers first wherever possible. However, in some instances imported flowers from overseas are also used. We endeavour to hand select the freshest and most beautiful seasonal flowers from the local flower markets available to us on the day. This means that you get gorgeous flowers that last, with transparent sourcing and elegant arrangements. 

Check out our list below of our favourite seasonal flowers, when they’re available in Australia and which colour varieties there are to choose from. 

SUMMER SEASONAL FLORALS & FOLIAGES

Summer florals in Australia are some of the most beautiful arrangements we put together, with lots of gorgeous show stopping florals like Peonies & Hydrangeas available to take an arrangement to the next level.
