In A Vase On Monday – Autumn Hues

Eliza Waters

img_5905My orange Blenko vase was just the thing to hold an arrangement featuring all the hues of autumn, starting with orange and yellow calendula (C. officinalis).

Beaded seed heads of lamb’s quarters (Chenopodium album), gray-green tinged with burgundy, caught my eye and matched the hues of other leaves colored by frosty weather – raspberry (Rubus ‘Heritage’) and the flocked leaves of doublefile viburnum (V. plicatum var. tomentosum ‘Mariesii’).

img_5904Yellowed lady fern fronds (Athyrium filix-femina) were a must and vertical touches were provided by fountain grass (Pennisetum alopecuroides).
