When you think of flowers you probably don’t think of striped, dotted, and checkered petals but such beauties do exist. If you’re planning on incorporating a pattern into your Big Day theme you might be able to find some flowers that fit right in. Of course if you’re looking for petals with filigree or chevron, you’re going to have to opt for paper flowers, but the lilies, roses, and orchids below are all real and pleasantly surprising. Know of a beautiful “patterned” flower that I haven’t mentioned here? I’d love to hear from you in the comments below!
Checkered Lilies (Fritillaria)
Striped Lady Slipper Orchids
Freckled Odontoglossum Orchids
Other Speckled Orchids
There are SO many species of orchids. Thousands! And I am not an expert on them. However, if you’re interested in the identification of orchids (and there are LOTS of them with spots and speckles) then I’d recommend checking out www.orchidspecies.com or everything-orchids.com.
