what's your spirit flower?

There are SO MANY varieties of flowers out there. Can't choose a favorite? Me neither! But you can find out which ones speak to you by exploring some facts and traits of these Mulberry & Moss faves. Then write down which ones give you all the heart eyes so when we meet, I can learn something new about you!

Dutch Tulip

cheerful classic

If you think you know tulips, you haven't met these. Unlike a generic tulip, these Peony-wannabes unfold a new layer of petals every day. Plus, they come in just about every color. Did you know tulips turn their heads each morning to face the Sun? Pretty neat. Just sayin'.

CAPPUCCINO ROSE

 

moody romantic

Where my fellow coffee lovers at?! I just love this chocolatey, blushy rose. It's muted complexion can tone down almost any bright color palette. In case you couldn't tell, I'm kind of obsessed.

garden rose

the queen

Garden roses are the best kind of rose! The commercial varieties are consistent with their large, sturdy heads and long stems. The domestic varieties are a true tribute to a home-grown rose, with every stem unique. Known for their cabbage-like shape with layers upon layers of petals, they're often mistaken for peonies. (Shhh. They're better.)

RANUNCULUS

ride or die

Oh you wonderful, whimsical thing, I'd be lost without you! This resilient flower adds character to any arrangement. The two or three months out of the year that she's not around, there's a gaping hole in my heart.

POPPIES

FREE SPIRIT

These are my go-to for every bride who loves the brights. Their varying colors are always a fun surprise, and their crinkly paper-like petals always get me. 


FLOWER-INDEX_SWEETPEAS.png

sweet peas

the name says it all!

One wiff of these delicate little peas and you're in love. Every arrangement needs some of these sweet little stems of ruffly, fragrant blooms. Ugh. I can't even.


FLOWER INDEX_ANEMONE.jpg

ANEMONE

Show stealer

Her sweet face is enough to make her stand out in a crowd. From sassy Burgundy to this black-centered favorite, this flower blooms November through May. 


FLOWER-INDEX_HELLEBORES.png

Hellebores

heartbreaker

What a tease. Her beautiful face is often looking at the floor, and she may be the most temperamental flower ever, but I still  can't resist having these delicate beauties grace the edge of a bowl or bridal bouquet. 


FLOWER INDEX_CAFEAULAIT.png

dahlia "Cafe au lait" 

hello-goodbye 

Another one known for breaking hearts and taking names, somehow she's still a most beloved Spring favorite. Cafe Au Lait is also native to colder parts, so if you want her in your outdoor August wedding, prepare to shed a few extra tears. Still, I'd choose her for 5 minutes over some more resilient flowers. *Sigh*


FLOWER INDEX_BANKSIA.png

BANKSIA PROTEA

desert goddess

Give me all the Kilim-Rug-Cactus-Teepee-Desert vibes! Just one of the many unique varietals of the Protea family, this Boho babe is a lesser known fave. 


FLOWER-INDEX_FRITTILLARIA.png

FRITTILARIA

wild child

I love your weird, wavy stem and your cute checkerboard face. The few weeks of Early Spring that I see you are some of the best days of my life. Keep letting your freak flag fly.


FLOWER INDEX_CHOCOLATE COSMOS.png

Chocolate cosmo

diva status

Named for their decadent fragrance, I love the way these babes dance airily atop any bouquet. I don't know whether to compare them to Tinkerbell or Beyonce. Maybe that's why I love them so much.

FLANNEL FLOWER

BUTTERFLY KISSES

The sweetest little flower that ever lived! These delicate, cozy little flowers transport me to a grassy mountain somewhere far, far away where I've just stumbled upon the most perfect wildflower poking through the ground. You little sweetness, you... You're too perfect to pick. I'll just leave you be.
