Church Flowers for Corpus Christi

For the Feast of Corpus Christi, orange or gold flowers seem particularly suitable.   The color of the vestments and altar frontals is white.  A church flower book by Katherine Morrison McClinton (an Anglican/ Episcopalian) says that "yellow and white or white and gold are the appropriate flowers" for Corpus Christi. She suggests using Shasta daisies, calla lilies, or white and yellow roses. See the post Orange Flowers for Church Decoration for more information.
