I visited a nursery last week and came across this glorious looking plant . Further inspection revealed it was called ‘Summer Sun’ and is an Australian native. The technical term for it is ‘laureolum x strobilinum’ and it also comes in a yellow leaf/red centre variety,
Australia is so lucky to have such glorious flowers and they’re perfect for a wedding bouquet. The rich reds of a flower like the waratah and the striking yellows of wattle.

A wedding based around beautiful Australian blooms can lead to many possibilities- rust toned bridesmaids gowns with a bride in dull gold, a table of favourite desserts like lamingtons, pavlova and more. An outdoor marquee with a bonfire. The scent of eucalyptus & gumnuts scattered across tables.
