Hello!

Has anyone ever grown flowers for a wedding around here? Have any tips? Im going to grow some flowers for for my sisters wedding on June 29th. She loves lime greens with saturated oranges, yellows, red, pinks. I think we should put a little dark blue too. I've never gardened with a deadline before! Here are some things i'm considering.

Roses (Obviously, I'm hoping my 'about face' will have blooms) Iceberg, and pink grandiflora, Sally Thomas.
Delphinium - wild form
Geums
Alonsoa
papaver 'falling in love'
Bells of Ireland?
euphorbia?
Snapdragons
german catch fly 'red'
coreopsis tinctoria
cheirianthus x allionii
cosmos 'orange'
sunflower?
red sweet peas
anchusa azurea?
baby tomatillos
agrostemma

Smart! lol, I'm afraid that June 29th will be one of those dreaded lulls in the garden. In between the spring and fall blooms around here. We've got a very drawn out season.
