My fiancée is in love with the bouquet bellow, but we have no clue about the flowers species used in it. Could someone help us? Any help is really appreciated.

Blue/white/purple bouquet


I see:

  • white Anemone coronaria or Poppy Anemone
  • blue Muscari racemosum or Grape Hyacinth, sometimes called Bluebell or Baby's Breath (ambiguous)
  • one white fringed Tulip (the blurry white flower on the right)
  • blue Centaurea cyanus, Cornflower or Bachelor's Button
  • white Syringa vulgaris or Lilac (tucked inbetween, on the left)
  • probably light blue Scilla or Squill (also blurry)
  • and one flower I can't identify properly.

I assume you are planning a Spring Wedding? Except for the cornflower those are all in bloom in April / May.

  • Excellent Stephie...Those blue flowers you couldn't get I THINK are those nice smelling early, early bulb bloomers...very common. SHOOT. Right on the tip of my tongue...first bulbs to come up in spring. Sorry, I'll have to go look it up. So silly...very common, short stems...oh! Hyathinseesomethingorother!! That help? Major grins!! Totally early spring wedding!! Good point... – stormy Jul 16 '15 at 4:08

    Or were you talking about the Blue Bachelor Buttons?! Muscari, would look similar to hya..whatever! But I thought those came on more mid summer? Definitely Blue Bachelor Buttons. – stormy Jul 16 '15 at 4:10
  • @stormy No, the Muscari are the Grape hyacinths, I'm wondering about the single whiteish-lavender one with the green center (slightly blurry) that loogs like a daisy but isn't a daisy.... – Stephie Jul 16 '15 at 4:11
  • Hyacinths...that is what I tried to say, nenerneener! Cornflower is another name for Bachelor buttons? Okay, these common names cause more problems than they are worth using. The light purple guy looks like Osteospermum...sp...African Daisy? In a light lavender. Otherwise, no idea. Pretty bouquet, huh! – stormy Jul 16 '15 at 4:18
  • @stormy Don't think it's Osteospermum, b/c there is one daisy-like flowers florists sometimes use as a filler with very delicate, silky petals. I've seen it, touched it - can't remember the name. D@&*#n! – Stephie Jul 16 '15 at 4:27
