In a Vase on Monday -Umbellifers

 I thought it might be fun to limit the flower choices to the umbells this week. I wish I had a nice spot outside to do these arrangements , but instead I make a big mess on my diminutive kitchen counter . At least it's close to the coffee.



 I like my result, but I can tell you that the Pulmonaria leaves lasted about an hour before they started to wilt.


  I used Achellia 'Moonshine' , Trachelium 'Hamer Panodora' (not open all the way so I am interested to see if it develops in the vase) Orlaya, Cenolophium denudatum and Angelica strica purpurea.


 The vase is Rumrill.

  1. I like an arrangement with a theme! Your vase collection is impressive. Trachelium is a plant I haven't grown in years now and, since I can't remember why that is or what happened to the plants I once had, I may have to find a place for some (before it gets too hot to plant anything).

    1. I find Trachelium to be somewhat short lived Kris. Maybe thats' why you don't have it anymore. I have found after 2 or 3 years it gets woody and then inexplicably a section of the plant will just wilt and collapse. I cut back the wilty part, but usually replace the whole plant the next year. Kind of like Lavender-grow it for a few years and replace. And the vase thing ? I have a vase problem, lol. I could probably do IAVOM for almost a year without repeating one.

  2. That's a great idea for a themed vase - you could have had a little cocktail unbrella as a prop!! Good for you to able to compare the different umbrella forms close up in your vase. Thanks for sharing

    1. I think a theme is helpful , especially in June when just about everything is blooming ! I need direction !

  4. Yarrow is in the Asteraceae family, although it does look like it belongs with the Apiaceae.

    1. Yes, when you think about it, there are a lot of cultivars that are less double and the ray flower form is much more evident.

  5. Well done! The arrangement and vase blend seamlessly into a delightful whole!

  6. Very pretty! I hardly ever put anything in a vase although I have been known to stuff mason jars with flowers on occasion. :o)

  7. Nice arrangement! A garden without umbellifers is an incomplete garden.
