For this design, I have used a round basket, with a base to match. The basket is lined with a plastic saucer and floral foam has been used for the mechanics. The foliage used is Fatsia japonica 'Aurea', Cotinus coggygria 'Royal Purple', Hedera colchica dentata, Physocarpus opulifolius 'Diabolo', Hedera helix 'Erecta', and at the back, Paeonia mlokosewitschii. For the height, I've used two pink Gladioli. Other flowers used are nine pink standard Carnations, five pink Roses, two stems of pink Lilies, and some Hydrangea 'Annabelle' flowers which have matured to a lovely pale green.
