Each Monday Cathy at Rambling In The Garden invites us to share an arrangement using materials collected from our gardens.
Against a backdrop of curving fronds from a potted fern, a ruby-red, passalong Dahlia (from Libby) stars in this mid-September offering.
The dahlia’s deep rich color is intense, its strong geometric form is perfection.
Zinnias in bold hues of orange, yellow and even pink create a secondary layer of interest in the arrangement.
The container is a stoneware pitcher glazed with bands of cream, green, blue by well-known local potter Jim Pringle.
Dahlia. Passalong, possibly ‘Wisconsin Red’
Zinnia ‘Cut and Come Again Mix’
Zinnia elegans ’Cactus Flower Blend’
Dracaena deremensis warneckii ‘Lemon Lime’
