The apricot tones of rose initially led me toward more somber colors, like the reddish bronze foliage of Leptospermum 'Copper Glow' and the maroon flowers of Salvia lanceolata. The first version of the vase spoke to me more of fall than spring so I sought to brighten it up with some white and yellow blooms.
It still reads a little more fall than spring to me but so be it. Coincidentally, I received a catalog hawking fall-planted bulbs this weekend so perhaps I'm not the only one that's confused.
