Calling all flower experts

I am getting married in Australia and i am finding organising flowers a real nightmare as it is sooo hard to chose when i can not actually see it myself. My Aussie florist has suggested Julia's rose which is a coffee colour (as my theme is coffee/cream and brown). SHe said to find a florist here that stocks it so i can match the colour, i can only find bushes which i will probably kill before they flower (as i am not known for my gardening skills. Does anyone know of a mailorder service or a florist in essex where i can see a sample??

    Hi bride2b - definitely take Cheryl's advice and do a google - I was looking for creamy-coloured roses for my bouquet and found pics of Julia's rose by googling 'coffee rose' or something like that. I hadn't heard of it before and was delighted to find it.

    Here's one link that I found:

    Good luck!

    My brother just got married in Oz and his wife carried a beautiful Protea. Since you are getting married somewhere exotic then go for exotic flowers!
