New Blooms: Local Dahlias, Peonies, and Flowering Artichokes

LocalGroupCloser

New at 18th Street and Divisadero are a range of locally-grown flowers in a palette of brilliant pink, red, gold, and purple.

DahliasCloseupDahlias are beginning to reach their ideal size and color for the season. Just in today are dahlias from Lupe Farms in Daly City, a local grower we love.  Lupe Rico has just a couple acres of land, and uses it to grow dahlias ($9.99/bunch), hydrangea ($14.99 for a big beautiful bunch), strawflower ($7.99/bunch), and many other blooms. Dahlias will continue to come in over the next couple of weeks, so expect lots of different colors and varieties soon.

Peonies2Peonies ($3.99/stem) are still blooming strong, including my favorite, the coral charm variety.

ArtichokeCloseup1Another cool find at the flower market this morning: flowering artichokes! These large blooms are a brilliant neon violet and make a real impact as a single stem or in a bouquet . ($4.99/stem).

Stop by for a bunch!
