What flowers are available in June?

June in Darwin has the lovely cool Dry Season breezes, making it a wonderful time for weddings and fresh flowers. With the first crops of our dry season varieties like sunflowers and rosellas along with a bounty of natives from down south, June offers a fantastic selection of blooms. Whether you’re planning a wedding, a special event, or just want to enjoy some beautiful flowers, here’s a guide to some of our favourite June blooms.

Special June Flowers

Special flowers to enjoy right now, these flower types are not available all year round. Grab them while you can!

King Protea: King Proteas are the biggest and most impressive of the protea family, available in stunning dusty pink and white. King Proteas are a firm favourite with our brides and they’re early this year, we don’t usually see them till around August when they are more abundant.

Hakea Eucalyptus: This flowering eucalyptus is a favourite for its stunning, bobbly flowers and draping long gum leaves. Just be mindful of the pollen, which can rub off on clothing.
