We are into the dog days of summer – bright, hot days filled with plenty of sunshine. Walter Knoll Florist knows that filling your home with seasonal florals is a great way to infuse a breezy, carefree and refreshing ambiance into your decor – and we are happy to provide all the most popular summer flowers for you to choose from.
One flower that exudes the essence of summer is the delphinium. Its tall stems and vibrant colors stand out from the crowd, adding stark contrast to every floral design they are included in. In fact, delphinium are almost always used as a backdrop for other flowers. But here at Walter Knoll Florist, we have brought the delphinium into the spotlight, and given them their own arrangement – after all, this beauty deserves some special attention! Choose your color and we’ll do the rest.
What’s in a Name? The word delphinium is derived from the Greek word delphis, or delphin, which means “dolphin.” The name refers to the flower’s curving, dolphin-like shape. Delphinium is also known as larkspur, as its blooms resemble the sharp claws, or spurs, of the lark’s foot; in fact, William Shakespeare called it “lark’s heel”.
Happy Birthday! The delphinium is the birth flower of July, making it the perfect choice for birthday arrangements and celebrations. And if one of your friends or relatives is expecting a baby boy this July, make sure to add some delphinium to your congratulations bouquet – it is a truly fitting way to welcome the new arrival.
This summer, keep delphiniums in mind – for birthdays, celebrations, picnics, or exceptional decor. You’ll find these exquisite flowers, and many other bright floral choices, at Walter Knoll Florist. We’ve been providing the most beautiful floral designs to Saint Louis since 1883 – and you can trust us to deliver the same to you.
