When considering new plants for the garden, I not only select the plant for its flower but also for its seedpods, catkins, fruits, berries and changing foliage colours.

I appreciate how these elements highlight each season and that they inspire people to create enchanting arrangements.

This dramatic arrangement certainly captures the winter mood and is styled beautifully with candles and draping velvet fabric.

Created by McKenzie Powell Floral & Event Designer – Seattle.

The arrangement includes persimmons, porcelain vine, windflowers, dahlias and forget-me-nots, and various autumn foraged foliage.

This stunning porcelain vine plant colours change from green to yellow to deep purple to various shades of blue as the weather gets colder, creating another colour palette.

Mother Nature is a true source of inspiration….
