In A Vase On Monday – Floral Fireworks

Eliza Waters

With spikes of gold Ligularia ‘The Rocket,’ burgundy-red fountains of Beebalm (Monarda didyma) and sprays of Goldenrod (Solidago sp.), fireworks came to mind after I arranged this week’s vase.

Queen Anne’s Lace (Daucus carota) are white sparklers and the lavender Hosta flowers are cascading Roman candles. Even the Quince (Chaenomeles speciosa) foliage seems to be aflame.

And now that my Sweet Peas (Lathyrus odoratus) have finally come in, I thought I’d share a vase of them as well. Is there a scent more heavenly?

Thanks to Cathy at Rambling In the Garden, who hosts a weekly meme to showcase arrangements created from our gardens. Wander over to see what gardeners all over the world are arranging this week.
