Chartreuse Table Flowers

In late winter, there aren’t many chartreuse flowers or greenery to be harvested in the garden yet , except for the fabulous  hellebore and euphorbia.

However, blossoms of cymbidiums and  glads as well as hypericum berries, succulents and foliage of favorite houseplants like maidenhair and begonias, offer plenty of choice for chartreuse table arrangements at this time of the year.

In May, the choices in the garden are opulent: alchimella, solomon seal, viburnum, hellebores and money plant that have gone to seed,  sedge,  foliage of bleeding heart and columbine… You will be amazed how much texture you can harvest from your garden, without cutting a single flower.

    Love the last arrangement! What is that little star shaped pod in there?

    It’s a sedge grass. I love that little guy!
