In A Vase On Monday – Autumn Light

Eliza Waters

Even though it feels summery with warm rain and humidity from Tropical Storm Nate, the light and changing leaves are definitely autumnal.

For today’s arrangement, I’m featuring colors to match the season– gold Zinnias (Zinnia elegans ‘Sprite’), orange Cigar Plant (Cuphea ignea) and burgundy Dahlia ‘Voodoo’ with purple Salvia ‘Magic Wand’ used for contrast.

The heavy glass Art Deco style tripod vase is accented with Red Maple (Acer rubrum) and Barrenwort (Epimedium × versicolor) leaves. Grasses are Japanese Forest Grass (Hakonechloa macra ‘Aureola’) and Maiden Grass (Miscanthus sinensis ‘Gracillimis’).

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.
