FLORAL DESIGNS
divider

For this design, I have used an oval brown ceramic hand-made container, with floral foam for the mechanics. I began by pinning a wreath made of Actinidia chinensis (Kiwi Fruit) vine to the foam, so that it stands upright in the design. For the height, I have used two Phormium tenax purpureum (New Zealand Flax) leaves, which pick up the colour of the container. At the base of the design, I have used Fatsia japonica variegata, Heuchera 'Pewter Veil', and Pittosporum variegata. I have added just three Madonna lilies (Lilium longiflorum) to the design to finish off.
