In this week’s edition of In a Vase on Monday I am happy to present flowers from my mid-September garden. Several plants are beginning to rebloom as fall approaches, so some of the blossoms are repeats from earlier submissions.
In the center of the arrangement are new blossoms from the ‘Blushing Bride’ hydrangea, which has supplied blooms for us all summer. It is flanked by Encore azaleas ‘Autumn Carnival’ and ‘Autumn Moonlight’ and Loropetalum ‘Rubra.’ The variegated foliage is Lantana ‘Samantha.’
I particularly like the way the loropetalum blossoms mirror the pink of the azalea. The foliage of the loropetalum and lantana are important elements in the makeup of the arrangement.
The vase is Waterford crystal and the candy dish, filled with glass candy, is an heirloom handed down from my Arranger’s family.
