Get the RHS Chatsworth Flower Show look

Here are all the flowers you'll need to create a summer bouquet, inspired by the artwork for Chatsworth 2019

The artwork for RHS Chatsworth Flower Show 2019
We’ve brought a new meaning to floral tea with our 2019 artwork for the RHS Chatsworth Flower Show.

Bursting out of a delicate teacup, you’ll find an array of bright blooms that capture the spirit of the summer show (5-9 June 2019).

We’ve put together a list of the flowers used in the display to help you recreate the Chatsworth look at home.

Flowers used in RHS Chatsworth Flower Show artworkHow to create a Chatsworth-inspired bouquet

Phlox

Single Phlox flowers have been used in our design and are simple but effective, giving an understated beauty. Famed for their sweet honey-like smell, Phlox will give your bouquet a wonderful aroma.

Phlox plants make the perfect addition to any traditional country garden, looking quite at home among other cottage plants. Plant Phlox in borders or containers in full sun or partial shade for summertime blooms.
 

Nigella

The feathery foliage of Nigella - also known as Love in the mist - gives a sense of romance, adding texture and interest to summer bouquets.

Very easy to grow in the garden, just choose a sunny spot and sow seeds straight into the border - within weeks you'll see masses of plants starting to grow. They’re ideal if you’re looking for a low-maintenance summer bloom.
 

Cosmos

Our 2018 show featured a beautiful river of Cosmos plants standing proud in front of Chatsworth House, so it only seemed right to include them in our artwork.

The pretty flowers of Cosmos grow on tall, branching stems with feathery foliage. They're really reliable for late summer colour, adding interest to any garden, border or bouquet.
 

Antirrhinum

Antirrhinum – or snapdragons as they’re affectionately known – have bright flowers that resemble dragon’s mouths if you look close enough.

Rainbow-like in their variety, Antirrhinum come in a range of shades, from bright white and fresh yellows to vibrant oranges and deep reds. These plants thrive in sunny positions, with abundant blooms from summer through to autumn.
 

Delphinium

The white buds of Delphinium are just visible in our display. The long stems of Delphinium adorned with an array of flowers make them stand-out plants of the summer season.

Grow them in full sun in borders and beds, providing shelter from strong winds and stakes for support for the best results.  
 

Sweet pea

Sweet peas are prized for their colour and scent and will add a beautiful aroma to any summer bouquet. These delicate climbing plants are easy to care for and make the perfect cut flower, because the more you pick them, the more blooms they produce.
