In A Vase On Monday – Ephemeral

In A Vase on Monday – Ephemeral

Our wild daylilies (Hemerocallis fulva) begin to bloom without fail during the first week of July every year. This year’s abundant rain has produced a bumper crop.

Although their blooms last only a day, I still like to make arrangements with them. Not all buds will flower, but many of the larger ones will. While I do need to trim the arrangement daily, it is worth it.

White mounds of Oakleaf hydrangea (H. quercifolia) blossoms and a raceme of Hosta ‘Frances Williams’ provide bulk, while arching stems of Coral Penstemon (P. barbatus) provide accent.

Daisy Fleabane (Erigeron annuus) is filler and foliage is Baptisia and Patrinia.

Thanks to Cathy at Rambling In the Garden, who hosts a weekly meme to showcase arrangements created from our gardens. Wander over to see what gardeners all over the world are arranging this week.
