Sunday Bunch 4

fairy lave bouquet

This week I managed to pull together a few pink bunches that made a change from all the autumnal shades. With a bit of picking over a few sprays of ‘The Fairy’ made a good basis to this bunch. I filled it out with some pink statice and, as the flowers have white flowers within the pink petals, some tightly closed ammobium (not showing their golden centres) picked up on their whiteness. More pink came from callistephus (China aster) ‘Nina Pink’. This is a lovely plant with dozens of small flowers on bushy plants. The only problem with it, for cutting, is that it branches all up the stems so that if you want long stems you have to waste lots of unopened buds – its nice though. Aster (true perennial) amellus ‘Pink Zenith’ is a great border plant but, when you put it with true pinks you realise just how close to mauve it really is. Because I had included some ‘blue’ into the bunch I decided to add a few stems of lavender which suited the aster and added some fragrance – useful because ‘The Fairy’ is more or less fragrance free.
