Flower Arranging Using Hosta Leaves
With an abundance of garden flowers this time of year, think of using hosta leaves along with your fresh flower arrangements to give more dimension, color, and texture. Fresh flowers from the garden sometimes don’t have enough leaves to compliment them in an arrangement (especially Asiatic Lilies). Combining them with hosta leaves gives you lots of dramatic possibilities.
This little vase has Angel Winged Red Begonia along with Kabitan Hosta Leaves. It makes a striking color combination.
Another idea is using a shallow glass bowl and adding water. Now, float lilies on top of hosta. Asiatic lilies have spike leaves that don’t work in an arrangement, but these leaves look beautiful with the lilies! I used a combination of Christmas Tree and Chiquita Hosta.
I happen to have a green depression glass dish that I like to use to display flowers. This is such an easy arrangement to do!
Try some climbing roses with Fanfare Impatients – and, of course, some dramatic leaves!
This little arrangement uses Dark Victory leaves….
These are Guacamole leaves….
Don’t you think the hosta leaves add a great dimension to these arrangements? Have you used them in your flower arrangements? If not, try it!
