Floral Spotlight: Poppies

Last week, poppies were the flora of choice for Wolfgang Puck’s Wedding Showcase at the Sunset Room.  Poppies bloom in the cold weather, so now is the perfect time to use them.  However, there are also annual and perennial poppies that bloom from late spring to mid summer.  These beautiful blooms aren’t very long lasting after the cut, so keep them in a vase, or if they’re in a bouquet, with the stems exposed so they can be in water until the last possible minute!

As seen last week, the stems are just as vibrant as the petals, making it possible to utilize the entire cut from stem to bloom.
