- Gaillardia x grandiflora 'Goblin' and/or 'Arizona Sun'
- Leptospermum 'Copper Glow'
- Pelargonium hortorum 'Mrs. Pollock'
- Senecio cineraria (now known as Jacobaea maritima)
|The only difference between Gaillardia 'Goblin' and 'Arizona Sun' that I can see is their height - I think there are probably some of each here|
|I've had a terrible time trying to photograph Leptospermum 'Copper Glow' in my garden but photographing it in a vase was easier - it looked almost good enough to have sufficed on its own|
|I meant for Pelargonium 'Mrs. Pollock' to have a larger role in this week's vase but the stem blocked some of the relatively short Gaillardia stems from view so it ended up in the back of the vase|
|I love the gray foliage of Senecio cineraria (now classified as Jacobaea maritima) but I find I also like its bright yellow flowers, which the bees seem to adore|
The second vase, although taller, has a lighter, more summery feel. It's similar to the bouquet I featured 2 weeks ago except that it includes a bolt of cheerful yellow.
- Argyranthemum frutescens 'Butterfly'
- Arthropodium cirratum (aka Renga lily)
- Eustoma grandiflorum 'Echo White'
- Jacobaea maritima
- Solanum xanti
|Argryrantemum 'Butterfly' and Jacobaea maritima complement each other well|
|Arthropodium cirratum is hard to photograph, especially under the gloom of "May Gray" skies, which cause the flowers to close|
|This Eustoma stem is a holdover from last week's arrangement - I cut off the central flower, which was beginning to fade, and tucked the stem into the back of this week's vase as it still has a lot of flower-power left|
|I think this is the best close-up photo I've gotten of Solanum xanti - this is the first time I've noticed those little green dots around the flower's center|
Here are the 2 vases in place:
|In the front entryway|
|On the dining room table|
