3 Reasons Why Amnesia Roses and Garden Roses Will Be Everywhere This Year

Everyone loves roses and it’s easy to see why they’re so popular. With sweet-smelling aromas, beautiful, stately petal designs, and classic meanings behind their colors, roses have been adored for centuries. These garden beauties have been praised in literature, art, and poetry for thousands of years, playing major roles in medicine, perfume, home decor, music, and fashion.

Before being introduced in the Western world, roses were cultivated in ancient Asia and throughout the Orient. Hardy enough to survive in a variety of conditions, species of these enduring blossoms have been mixed and matched to create new, modern varieties we have today. Of those modern varieties, Cascade Floral Wholesale is realizing two are making waves lately: the amnesia rose and the garden rose. Discover why these are becoming so popular and fall in love with your new favorite rose.

Garden Roses For The Fairest Of Weddings

Is there anything more romantic than a delicate, ruffled, delightfully fragranced garden rose? We here at Cascade Floral Wholesale think not. 

You could argue that any rose (every rose) is special, and yet, there’s something a little more rarefied and precious about the ones that belong to the category of “garden.” These beauties have been cultivated since the 14th century as ornamentals, and indeed today they are still lovingly designed by skilled horticulturists and growers. How are they different from the standard rose? They’re larger, with many petals (those ruffles) that create little “hearts” at their center. They are a little less polished then their classic counterparts, offering more of a free-form appeal. The cup of a garden rose is wider, the better to hold their very high petal count. 

We’re featuring garden roses because they’re beautiful and worthy of our attention, but also because they are the perfect addition to the bridal floral suite. Perhaps the rose itself should just do the talking:

Behold the Keira Garden Rose, a David Austin signature that practically radiates from a bridal bouquet. This rose’s opalescent appearance brings an ethereal quality to bouquets, wearables, centerpiece designs, or floral accents of any kind at a wedding or reception. If your color palette needs a flower that’s as rosy as the dawn, this is the flower for you. If you’re looking for a more neutral, layered-whites look, we would point you to the Moonstone Garden Rose.

We love the crisp contrast between Moonstone’s fluid creamy petals and the rich green. On their own, garden roses make a beautiful bouquet, but they also look gorgeous alongside equally romantic flowers. Blend them into a gathering that builds color, or keep it in one range only. Imagine bridesmaids bouquets composed solely of the Pink O’Hara Garden Rose, for instance.

Do you need anything else? Whether you call it bubblegum pink, ballet shoe pink, or the absolute perfect pink, the O’Hara’s petals go from outwardly pale to a vibrantly-colored center, giving you a custom look. With its enchanting scent and those enfolded hearts in the center, it doesn’t get more romantic than this flower.

Our garden rose selection is substantial, and we offer each type by 12, 60, and 120 bulk stems. If you’re putting together your spring or summer wedding florals, you’ll definitely want to consider giving this charming flower a starring role.

An Enticing Purple Floral Mix For Spring Weddings

Spring—and its weddings—is just around the corner, and we here at Cascade Floral Wholesale have the flowers to show for it.

One of the most compelling color palettes that bridges the transition from winter to spring is purple, a hue that Pantone celebrated last year with Ultra Violet. On the purple spectrum you’ll find a rich array of tones, everything from soft, romantic lavender to intriguing blackberry, sensual wine, and vivid lilac. Thankfully, there are a whole host of flowers that capture this palette. A spring wedding, especially early in the season, is the perfect platform for this gorgeous color, which conveys a coolly modern (and yet inviting) feel. 

In that spirit, we’re showcasing our favorite purple combos, which provide everything you need to create bouquets, centerpieces, and other wedding decor.

In our Luscious Lavender Luxury Mix, you’ll find light, medium, and dark purples represented in garden roses, snapdragon, and other seasonal flowers like dahlia. Silvery greens and cream floral accents provide a lovely counterpoint. Our combos always come with a robust offering of focus, line, and filler flowers as well as greens, allowing you to customize and design to your heart’s content. For a more budget-friendly choice, we offer a Luscious Lavender Standard Mix, which includes flowers like lilies, roses, tulips, alstroemeria, and greenery. 


With our Soft Surrounding Luxury Mix, you’ll still get a standout purple tone, but with the mitigating influence of soft blues, blush pinks, and rose hues. The look of this mix is polished but casual, with an elegant spring garden feel and a range of textures. And when it comes to choosing a purple palette for your wedding flowers, range is everything!
