Small Flowering Plants for Wedding Decorations?

I need 100+ live flowering plants for my daughter's wedding, August 22, 2015. I have coffee mugs to plant them in and want to nest 10 on each table to use as centerpieces and as a take-away gift for our guests. We live in St. Louis and the nursery selections are pretty slim. Any ideas for plants would be appreciated.

One thought, several years ago I made small topiaries for my sons wedding. I started far enough in advance to get them trained around heart shaped wire, but what I found to use was a flat of ivy startings at the nursery, that they sold for starting ground-cover. Take a look at flats of things like this and maybe you can find something to use. The green looked great and I tied some colored super-narrow ribbon on for color.

Unfortunately, most flowers bloom in early to late spring. Unless you live in a high altitude like I do, then it's later. The prettiest flowers that grow here in profusion are golden banner, and they just went to seed.


I feel black locust blossoms are excellent for a wedding, however it would be too late in the year. Depending on your zone, sunflowers may be still blooming that late. Do you have wild sunflowers in Missouri?

Here is a link of some flowers you can look for:

Here's one specifically for Missouri:

Caution: Avoid any daisy-like flowers unless you can positively identify them as non-toxic. They could be in the Chrysanthemum family. My cat was exposed to a Chrysanthemum, did not even eat any and was still sick for a week.
