In A Vase On Monday – 5th Anniversary

Cathy at Rambling In the Garden, host of the weekly meme showcasing arrangements created from our gardens, is celebrating five years of IAVOM. Her requested theme this week is anything NOT in a vase, so I created a wreath. The vine base is made from invasive Asian bittersweet that I’m glad to cut to get rid of, a losing battle at best.Red Oak leaves (Quercus rubra) and dried bracts of Oak-leaved Hydrangea (H. quercifolia), along with fluffy seed heads of Maiden Grass (Miscanthus sinensis) form the body.A few stems of wild Goldenrod (Solidago) seed heads and seedless Coneflower calyxes (Echinacea purpurea) are tucked in, with bright purple berries of Beautyberry (Callicarpa americana) completing the wreath.
