My 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).
Small wands of wild goldenrod (Solidago sp.), picked from an area that was mowed in August, managed to bloom despite the setback.
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’).
Yellowed lady fern fronds (Athyrium filix-femina) were a must and vertical touches were provided by fountain grass (Pennisetum alopecuroides).
Thanks to Cathy at Rambling In the Garden, who hosts a weekly meme to showcase what is blooming in our gardens. Wander over to see what gardeners all over the world are arranging this week.
