I am interested in having wildflowers in my wedding in late September. Although the wedding is in the early fall I wanted to have dandelions but I was informed that they are not long lasting enough for a wedding. Any suggestions?
Mr. Smarty Plants assumes your wedding is going to be in Missouri in September. You can find out what wildflowers will be in bloom in Missouri by doing a Combination Search in our Native Plants Database by choosing "Missouri" from Select State or Province and September and October (since your wedding will be in late September) from Bloom Characteristics: Time.
Here are a few suggestions for you from Mr. Smarty Plants:
