|Dahlia 'Citron du Cap' was the starting point for this vase but 2 other dahlia varieties quickly got on board|
|I hadn't planned on using the stiff Pittosporum foliage either but yesterday morning my husband went crazy trimming it to clear space for the painters we expect to start work on the outside of the house this week so it ended up here|
|Clockwise from the upper left: Dahlias 'Citron du Cap', 'Labyrinth' and 'Terracotta', noID white Cosmos, Pittosporum tobira 'Variegata', and Tanacetum parthenium|
One vase containing dahlias wasn't enough so here's another one.
|I was cutting Abelia for inclusion in the first vase when I decided it'd look even better with Dahlia 'Enchantress'|
|Again, 2 additional dahlias jumped on board, along with a few foxglove stems. I pulled most of my remaining foxgloves 2 weeks ago but the 2 plants I left in place are still flowering.|
|Clockwise from the upper left: Dahlias 'Enchantress', 'Diva' and 'Hollyhill Karen Lee', Abelia grandiflora ' Hopley's Variegated', and Digitalis purpurea|
Even after filling 2 vases, I had leftovers that landed in a third vase.
|One of Dahlia 'Punkin Spice's' stems took a nose dive and I couldn't just leave her hanging|
|The Coprosma was originally intended for the first vase but it got booted by the Pittosporum|
|Clockwise from the left: Dahlia 'Punkin Spice', Zinnia elegans, and Coprosma repens 'Plum Hussey'|
