This arrangement features a spire of Kniphofia ‘Percy’s Pride’ as the main element. A few stems of Chasmanthium latifolium pick up on the green theme and keep it airy. Sedum ‘Stardust’ add a wee bit of bulk and the berries of Hypericum inodorum ‘Albury Purple’ echo the colors of the pebbles that anchor the stems in the vase.
Viewed from the side, you can see that the vase is narrow front to back and wide side to side. It makes it possible to display things without the density you usually get with a round container. I purchased ‘Albury Purple’ specifically for these berries, but the blue-green foliage is very nice too.
