Arrangement of the week – October 27, 2014

I went out into the garden to stretch my legs last week and came back with a large clipping of foliage and flowers. I was able to pull together two arrangements that had two completely different hues, and then proceeded to only photograph one. Oh well.  Here is one arrangement of the purples and orange, the others was dark burgundy and almost blacks. Arrangement of the week - October 27, 2014, Thinking Outside the Boxwood Here is a list of what was included:

  • Persicaria amplexicaulis ‘Firetail’
  • Cotinus coggygria ‘Royal Purple’
  • Lysimachia clethroides
  • Spiraea nipponica ‘Snowmound’
  • Amsonia hubrichtii
  • Beta vulgaris subsp. cicla
  • Malus ‘Prairifire’
  • Rosa x hybrid ‘Charlotte’ hips,
  • Solenostemon scutellarioides ‘Giant Exhibition Magma’

I am going to be sad when going out to the garden does not produce such bountiful clippings of color. I do a lot of brainstorming during the winter months and these flowers and foliage provide fresh inspiration that the grey and white Ohio winters cannot. Here’s to enjoying it while it lasts.

  1. Hi, I just found your blog in the past month and enjoy your posts. I recently started working in Landscape design in Northern Indiana (I know what you mean about dull white/grey winters!) and enjoy the inspiration your posts and pinterest pins provide. Was wondering, however, if you could include the more common names of plants, along with the latin. Would be much appreciated, thanks!
