I crammed most of my selections into a small vase received from co-workers as a wedding present many, many years ago. I seldom use the vase because it holds relatively little water. It's 6 inches tall, 3 inches wide at the mouth but less that 1/2 inch in depth.

Here's what I snipped before the rain soaked my clothes:
|Top row: Erigeron glaucus 'Wayne Roderick', a California native, which is more lavender-blue than it looks in this photo|
Bottom row: Achillea 'Moonshine', Artemisia 'Powis Castle', and Lavendula angustifolia 'SuperBlue'
I had a few leftover stems that I couldn't squeeze into the vase shown above, which I used to refresh the 3-inch vase that held pink flowers last week.
|The tiny vase contains Salvia 'Marine Blue', Tagetes lemmonii, Gaillardia aristata, and Duranta erecta 'Gold Mound'|
The first vase sits in the living room and the second sits by the kitchen sink.
|The vase was a good fit for the small glass side table under a lamp|
|The tiny vase looks good with just about everything|
And the succulent vase, created 3 weeks ago, sufficed as the centerpiece for the dining room table.
|Despite running the heater much of the time for the past 2 weeks, my most recent succulent vase is still holding up remarkably well|
