wedding arrangements, my wife and I are big fans of the color chartreuse. As it turned out, I brought some flowers of my own for our dinner, three cut flowers from a siam tulip (Curcuma) that I bought from the nursery with the express intent of using for an arrangement. I'd like to think that her flowers and my flowers worked quite well together.
The siam tulip flowers seem to float above a swirling sea of green. Don't you ever underestimate the gracefulness of those common florist mums in the right setting. They make a great backdrop for more architectural flowers. It's as if the Fujis are a ground cover and the ginger flowers are accent plants in a miniature landscape.
