The vase contains:
- Abelia x grandiflora 'Kaleidoscope'
- Gomphrena haageana
- Heteromeles arbutifolia (aka Toyon), berries
- Leucadendron 'Wilson's Wonder'
- Rose 'Joseph's Coat'
- Tagetes lemmonii
|The petals of the Gomphrena dry slowly starting from the base of the flower, taking on a texture like tissue paper|
|Toyon is the official native plant of the City of Los Angeles - why LA found it necessary to name an official plant I can't explain but at least it garners an oft-overlooked plant some attention|
|Close up of the bracts of Leucadendron 'Wilson's Wonder,' which redden in winter|
|My bedraggled 'Joseph's coat rose with one of the few remnants of Tagetes lemmonii|
This cheerful vase landed in one of my standard spots across from the front door.
To see other floral and foliage concoctions, visit Cathy at Rambling in the Garden for this week's line up.
