Flowers

So I talked to the head of hilltop garden center today.  It’s a botanical garden type place associated with IU.

They have cutting gardens and he said he’d be willing to let us cut as much as we want right before the wedding if I just make a donation to the center, $150! He estimated about 250 stems for all of our table arrangements, etc.

I am so excited, what a steal!

The flowers that will be in bloom, that we’ll probably be using for table arrangements are as follows:

coreopsis, ageratum, sunflower, celosia,cosmos,zinnia

As far as what they’ve planted, one of the staff said the zinnias are a medley of colors including yellow, pink, orange, green, red, etc.
Ageratum are purple.  Coreopsis is yellow and pink, cosmos are pink and yellow, cockscomb are vibrant pink and yellow.  Lots of reds/pinks.
