In A Vase On Monday – Variety

Eliza Waters

To feature more of my vase collection, I’m offering two vases for today’s IAVOM.

The first, in an orange Blenko vase sporting autumn colors (that are showing around here in the trees faster than I’d like), are Dahlia ‘Tiki Torch’ with gold, salmon and lemon Zinnia ‘Sprite’ blooms. White Phlox (P. paniculata), yellow Calendula officinalis and Goldenrod (Solidago sp.) finish the arrangement.

For the second, I used a vintage, heirloom lead frog, with spiky nails to hold the stems. As you can imagine, it is quite heavy and topple-free.

Filled with velvety Dahlia ‘Voodoo’ blossoms, ‘Lemon Queen’ Sunflowers (Helianthus annuus), bright pink Zinnia ‘Sprite’ and light pink Cosmos ‘Sensation’ blooms.

Accents are lavender-blue Heart-leaved Aster (Symphyotrichum cordifolium), Nigella damascena seed pods and a few Ladybells (Adenophora confusa). Greens are Hosta leaves and fronds of Christmas fern (Polystichum acrostichoides).
