Double Trouble!

Inspired by this design by Philadelphia based master floral designer Sullivan Owen, which features some absolutely lovely double Hellebores that I didn’t even recognize at first in the context of the bouquet, I wanted to share some photos of some very cool double varieties of some of my favorite flowers.

I know the commercial availability of these varieties isn’t consistent, but I have seen some of them on occasion and hope we’ll be seeing more of them!

Let’s start with the Hellebores – I truly love these flowers (those mottled magentas, burgundies and greens they come in are just to die for) – and even more so in their double trouble form!

SIGH!!!

I am also loving some of the double hydrangea varieties I’ve seen on nursery and garden sites.  Hope to get my hands on some soon!  I know the scale is much different, but don’t the blooms on the white ones almost look like gardenias?

Stay tuned next week – I’m collecting my favorite double lilies, tulips, and anemones next!
