Free Style Using Hosta Leaves
I think many people have Hostas in their garden because of their popularity and beautiful leaves. It's also a perennial! For today's class we had to use at least five Hosta leaves in our arrangement, along with other materials, to create a contemporary style. I had in mind this perfect container for my arrangement. So in class, I used yellow irises and Gaillardias combined with Hostas, but our teacher said it might be better just to use one kind of flower. So I rearranged it at home. It really stands out--the flowers match the container so well! (5/4/10)
This is my teacher's arrangement, very pretty.
