You have seen the ‘Debutante’ camellias several times, the hellebores aren’t quite open yet, and I’m saving the pansies when I might be in exremis on a given Monday. For our vase this week, my Arranger suggested we share this simple arrangement of aucuba foliage.
‘Mr. Goldstrike’ is a favorite aucuba, and its lovely foliage has accompanied many of our vases over the years. It has suffered a bit this winter from the icy weather here but is now showing new growth and plenty of flower buds. The flowers are rather insignificant, but the variegation is remarkable.
Our thanks again to Cathy at Rambling in the Garden who is the host for In a Vase on Monday. Please visit her delightful blog and see what she and others are sharing this week.
