This week’s bouquet was very quick and simple. I had some verbena bonariensis that had fallen over and were laying in the pathway of the garden. In order to not trample them, I decided to cut and make a bouquet from them. On the way into the house, I decided to add some of my ‘Royal Standard’ hosta flowers since I had read they make great cut flowers.
I’m not exactly sure they make a great combination, but like most of my bouquets, I like the close up photos actually better than the bouquet as a whole.
Verbena bonariensis is a 4 – 5 foot plant with clusters of tiny flowers on the end of long leggy stems. It has a light, fairy-like look in the garden, as if it is floating above everything else.
And well . . . the ‘Royal Standard’ hostas . . . I have already sang their praises in the last post. What a gorgeous cut flower they make.
Their lily-like smell is divine and fills the room with a heavenly fragrance, especially in the evening.
I’ve been carrying this bouquet from room to room with me just so I can enjoy it’s simple beauty and fragrance.
