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.

  1. Sorry to be late having a look at your vase, Ricki – if you haven’t seen my reply to your comment then you won’t yet know that I found it in my spam! I love the simplicity of your vase – the choice and balance of contents is really inspired. You must be thrilled with it! I must look out for a white sedum like this as the flowers would be as useful as the pink ones – it’s a useful shaped vase too, isn’t it?

    • Cathy~These spam filters do seem to have a mind of their own. I’ve been struggling with mine. I appreciate your thoughtful comments whenever they come. The shape of that vase is especially convenient when I am being stingy with stems, by choice or by necessity.
