Do you need some inspiration? Keep reading to discover different types of wildflowers you can have in your bouquet.

Chocolate Cosmos

With fall right around the corner, you'll probably be looking for a way to incorporate deeper colors into your bouquets. Chocolate cosmos are one of the best flower types to really bring in that autumn feel.

The best part is that they're rather small, so they don't have to be the main attraction. You can choose larger flowers in varying shades of red, orange, and yellow, then throw some chocolate cosmos into the mix to ensure your bouquet doesn't look too summery.

Clematis

Do you want to create a bouquet reminiscent of a lush rainforest? You'll want to include lots of bright colors and greenery. Clematis should be included among other flower types to give this bouquet a real wow factor.

They add interest by leaning downwards instead of straight up. This will give your bouquet an extra level and make it seem like it's bursting at the seams. Plus, you'll see more exposed leaves which help to add greenery to really complete the effect.

Blue Hydrangea

Are you looking for a more unique bouquet? Blue Hydrangeas are a great way to add something with a little extra texture and color.

A bushel of these small flowers has a fluffy and intricate appearance from afar and the gorgeous hue will add a nice pop of color. They can be a nice way to create a fun centerpiece for your dining room table or welcome a newly born baby boy into the world.

Roses

Has your wife or girlfriend done something special for you recently? Maybe she surprised you with tickets to your favorite team's game, or maybe she's been very supportive during a difficult time. A bouquet is a great way to show her that she is appreciated and loved.

Roses are among the most common flower types that go in bouquets - and there's a good reason why. Red roses are the epitome of love and passion. They make great bouquets throughout the year, so don't worry about saving it for Valentine's Day.

If you want something a little more unique, consider opting for different colored roses. Pink roses symbolize admiration and gentleness while peach roses symbolize appreciation. For something really different, go for a bouquet of lavender roses which represents a deep, fairy-tale love.

Dendrobium

Are you looking for the perfect bouquet for the sophisticated and classy women in your life? Dendrobiums make a great gift for mothers, coworkers, and friends.

These purple orchids are simple, but elegant and really make a statement. They're a great way to celebrate a promotion or housewarming party and will act as a focal piece in any room of the house or office.

Love-In-A-Puff

Just because summer is winding down, doesn't mean you have to say goodbye to those bright yellow flowers until next year. In fact, yellow field flowers make great additions to autumn-themed bouquets. They compliment red and orange flowers and mimic the color of changing leaves.

Love-in-a-puffs bring happiness into any room, so they're great for anyone who needs a good smile. The simple shape and fun color also make them a great addition to a rustic wedding centerpiece. There are so many ways to incorporate these little flowers to bring joy into any bouquet.

Lavender

Close your eyes and imagine you're in a field of wildflowers. What does it look like? What does it smell like?

Lavender is one of the best flower types to mimic this dream. Their soft purple color is very relaxing to look at and they are among the most fragrant flowers. A bouquet of lavender is a great way to freshen up any room naturally or help you de-stress after a rough few days.

Mini Calla Lilies

Have you ever gone to the garden section and ended up a handful of similar-shaped flowers? This can make your bouquet seem a little flat and bland. You'll want to vary your flower types and shapes.

Calla Lilies have a unique asymmetrical shape that makes them a great go-to when you need some more variety. If you don't want them to be the focal point of the bouquet, consider getting mini call lilies. The small size allows them to blend in enough that another flower can be the star, while still adding interest to the bouquet.

The best part is that they come in different colors, including white, pink, yellow, purple, and even black. You're sure to find the right color of mini calla lilies to complete any bouquet, whether it's for a funeral or an anniversary.
