These white flowers are winners
Whether you get your flowers from a local market, a florist or your own backyard, these whites are winners.
Ranunculus: Just as lovely in bud as in bloom, these beauties enjoy a long vase life. Known as buttercups for their yellow centres, they resonate with a feathery smooth lushness.
Hydrangeas: Large flower heads make hydrangeas versatile cut flowers; stunning as singles or grouped together for an elegantly bouncy bouquet.
Peonies: Old-fashioned favourites, these top-heavy stunners put on a splendid show as their fragrant flowers unfurl. Tie stems together below the waterline, or cut blooms and display in a small cup.
Lilacs: These quintessential country flowers with their tiny multiple blooms are great offset with bold single blossoms.
Sweet peas: Dangling, fragile-looking blooms add movement to any arrangement.
Hyacinths: A florist staple, their single, dense, fragrant spikes are bold companions to round, tight blooms.
