year-round romance of roses
A showcase of growers'
rose varieties for 2008.
(Sample one of nine gorgeous arrangements
from this January design feature).
Surrounding the ring
of delicate pink ‘Rosita Vendela’ roses, both inside and outside the
blush blooms, variegated Pittosporum provides a bold backdrop for the
soft palette. The materials are assembled in a floral-foam design ring,
creating a horizontal wreath that will captivate those who crave the
unexpected. Concealing the edge of the wreath’s plastic tray, a pretty
dotted ribbon repeats the roses’ feminine hue.
