Friday Flowers: Cockscomb

Stop giggling. While admittedly it has a bit of a silly name, cockscomb is quite a fantastic flower! Cockscomb is what it would look like if coral was made of velvet. Twisty and fuzzy, cockscomb will without a doubt add interest and personality to whatever arrangement it is added whether tucked in and almost hidden with other flowers, or as a featured bloom!

Definitely not a tradition flower by any means, but do you think you’d use cockscomb in your wedding flowers?
