Today again I am joining Cathy for In A Vase On Monday, a weekly challenge to fill a vase using materials gathered from one’s garden.
Anemones have been my favorite flower this spring for indoors and out. Before the Anemones wind down completely I selected a few to fill the colorful multi-stemmed vase my daughter gave me last year.
‘May Night’ Meadow Sage is now fully in bloom in the northern border and it seemed perfect to include this week. While similar in color, the salvia adds height and provides contrasting texture and form.
For an extra punch of color I added a dark magenta cutting from a new Alstroemeria plant purchased last week.
I am a little worried this plant might spread too much so will watch it closely. It is hardy to zone 8 and the garden is zone 7b, so perhaps that will keep the spread in check. Some
Anemone coronaria ‘Bride’
Anemone coronaria ‘Mr. Fokker’
Alstroemeria x ‘Tesmach’ (Inticancha Machu Peruvian Lily)
Salvia nemorosa ‘May Night’ (Hardy Sage, Meadow Sage))
