Design 380

(Beginners' Class, 9.3.10)

This arrangement uses only three flowers, and some interesting foliage and berries. I've used a traditional style container, which is a shallow urn with a foot and two handles, and floral foam for the mechanics. For the height, I've used Phormium tenax, with the contrasting form of Corylus avellana 'Contorta' (contorted Hazel), with Hedera colchica 'Sulphur Heart', Hedera hibernica, and Nandina domestica lower down to create the width and shape. I've used three pink roses for the focal flowers, then filled in using some deep pink-tinged Hebe foliage, Pine, and a cluster of Aucuba japonica berries on the left, and Hedera helix berries on the right. Finally, I've added three Liriope muscari variegata (China grass) leaves looped to add rhythm and interest.
