|This week, the back view of the vase is almost as pretty as the front view|
The jumping off point for the new color scheme was Russelia equisetiformis 'Flamingo Park.'
|Russelia 'Flamingo Park' is shown here in a close-up with Grevillea 'Superb'|
Once I had my new color scheme, I was able to find a surprising number of complementary materials. This week's bouquet consists of:
- Abelia grandiflora 'Kaleidoscope' (3 stems)
- Digiplexis 'Illumination Flame' (2 stems)
- Gaillardia x grandiflora 'Goblin' (4 stems)
- Grevillea 'Superb' (1 stem)
- Leucadendron 'Wilson's Wonder' (3 stems)
- Nandina domestica (1 stem)
- Russelia equisetiformis 'Flamingo Park' (2 stems)
- Solenostemon scutellarioides 'Honey Crisp Coleus' (1 stem)
- Tanacetum parthenium 'Aureum' (5 stems)
|The Digiplexis is still producing sporadic blooms - shown here with Grevillea on one side, Gaillardia on the other, and a coleus leaf in the back|
|It's hard to pick a favorite when it comes to Leucadendron but 'Wilson's Wonder,' my 1st Leucadendron, is the one that most often causes me to stop in my tracks|
|The unripe berries of the Nandina were the perfect color for this bouquet|
The vase is visible when you step through the front door, next to my favorite toad.
