Popular Flowers in Season in Australia for your wedding or event

Flowers in Season in Australia

As floral designers in Australia, we often find that most of the search results we see when we Google flowers in season are actually for the Northern Hemisphere, not for Australia.  And we know that because we are familiar with floral seasonality. 

So we thought it might be helpful for our clients if we list what we find to be the most popular flowers in season in Australia

Often when choosing flowers for a wedding or event, we think of the following: 

  • incorporating flowers we like
  • including flowers that match our favourite colours or wedding colour palette
  • flowers we find on Pinterest
  • the wedding or event budget.

However in the end, it can be disappointing to find out the flowers you wish to include are not in season. So to help you with planning your event flowers, here’s our list of popular flowers by season and colour.

(Note this list is by no means exhaustive. Also, as flowers are products of nature, weather conditions can shorten or extend their flowering season.)
