For this design, I have used a rectangular blue ceramic container, with floral foam for the mechanics. This arrangement is in the European parallel style, where all the material is grouped, and arranged in parallel lines. At the base of the design, I have grouped the foliage, and layered it. The foliage used is Hedera colchica 'Sulphur Heart, Heuchera 'Liquorice', Heuchera 'Obsidian' and Heuchera 'Cascade Dawn'. For the height at the back, I've used Aruncus dioicus, Ornithogalum and Antirrhunum. Other foliage and flowers used are seed heads of Muscari armeniacum, white Roses, pink Carnations, green spray Chrysanthemums, blue Ceanothus 'Concha' (to pick up the colour of the container), and Hebe.
