The Poppy

“Poppies are great for summer because of the colors that are available. Orange, red and pinks all make a vibrant combination that is suitable to most summer wedding palettes. A poppy’s stem is very malleable, making the stem just as interesting as the bloom.” —RCena Maness, with Flowerama
