I am looking for suggestions for potted flowers for centerpieces at wedding reception to be held in late June. Possibly something in a 4 or 6 inch pot with blooms. What kind of flowers would be in season? We will be working with

Some of the cool season annuals in bloom in June include snapdragons, pansies, stock, primroses and coreopsis. While you can plant them in the garden for the remainder of the season, they will die out over the winter months. Some June blooming perennials include Carpathian Harebell (Campanula carpatica),
Peach-Leaf Bellflower (Campanula persicifolia), Blanket Flower (Gaillardia x grandiflora), Coral Bells (Heuchera), Rock Soapwort (Saponaria ocymoides), Pincushion Flower (Scabiosa caucasica), Stokes Aster (Stokesia laevis), Spiderwort (Tradescantia x andersoniana), Veronica (Veronica spicata, V. longifolia), Pale Purple Coneflower (Echinacea pallida), and American Bellflower (Campanula americana).

Best wishes with your garden and with the wedding!
