Once again we searched the garden for items to include in this week’s In a Vase on Monday, an idea introduced by Cathy at Rambling in the Garden. We have included pansies and violas in earlier offerings, and they are quite beautiful right now. However, we thought we might wait a bit before showing them again. The ‘Debutante’ Camellia japonica is loaded with flowers, but they are all damaged to some degree by the most recent frost. Therefore, I decided to make selections of some the different foliage plants to include in our vase.
Included in the arrangement (back to front) are:
‘Green Giant’ arborvitae
Loropetalum chinense ‘Rubra‘
Cupressocyparis laylandii ‘Golconda’ Leyland cypress
Euonymous japonica ‘Aureo-marginata
The two gold Christmas tree bulbs are included to add a holiday spirit.
My Arranger and I had a debate as to whether this is a vase, a bowl, or a dish. We compromised by calling it a container. What do you think?
