Stock flowers, which also go by the name of Virginia stock or gillyflower, boast sophisticated, slender stalks, and have sweet-smelling blossoms attached to them. These blooms are given to those you want to wish a happy life to.
Often used to fill gaps in garden spaces during the summer months, they’re also a fantastic option for filling bouquets given their colours and elegance.
Known for their hardiness, they’re a popular choice for home-growing too if you want to try your hand at cultivating some of your own. All they need is a sunny spot and well-draining soil.
When placed in a bouquet alongside other plants, asters add a great amount of interest! They’re a great cut flower, and are perfect when used as a filler, especially given their multi-branched blooming stems and attractive colour.
They’re a great way to make a smaller bouquet look a lot larger than it is! They can also be used in table displays, particularly for runner designs.
Note that asters tend to bloom in late summer, so you might have to wait a little bit before you can really experience their daisy-like flowers with their magical hues.
Solidago, often referred to as goldenrods, is a genus of between 100 and 120 types of blooming plants, which come from the Asteraceae family.
This type of plant – a herbaceous perennial specie – is found in open locations such as prairies, meadows, and savannas. It adds a touch of boho style to an array of summer bouquets, as well as a hot hit of colour to any display!
The Changing Seasons bouquet from Serenata Flowers is a perfect example of how to use this bloom in a summer display, as it boasts a stylish array of beautiful cerise and red roses, hot hued orange lilies and red hypericum berries, all of which are perfectly complemented by bright yellow solidago blooms.

Classic or hybrid tea roses are some of the most common roses for use in bouquets, especially those available in the summer months. They’re a great cut bloom, and as well as being used in bouquets, they’re also a great option for use in floral arrangements.
From red to peach, pink, lavender, white and cream, there are a variety of colours to choose from and all promise to pack a punch when placed in a bouquet. There’s one point to keep in mind though – the different hues denote different meanings, with red roses being symbolic of romance and love, for example.
