In A Vase on Monday – Uplifting

Eliza Waters

flower arrangementIt seems that my color palette this year is trending towards bright and bold. I do have pink and white out there, but perhaps I’m unconsciously trying to uplift our spirits during this crisis through my flower choices. It works for me!

I chose my orange Blenko vase to showcase the orange and yellow Cosmos (C. sulphureus) that have come on strongly this week. I particularly love the petals that look like they are brushstroked with darker shades. A mix of similarly-colored Zinnia (Z. elegans ‘Cut and Come Again’ and ‘Aztec’) and a few Gloriosa Daisies (Rudbeckia hirta) add their own cheer to the arrangement.

White Cleome (C. hassleriana) cools the heat a bit and blue Cornflowers (Centaurea cyanus) and purple Angelonia (A. angustifolia) offer contrast.
