In this arrangement we used:
3 Knock out Roses
1 Sweet Pea
1 Purple Petunia
2 Citronella Geranium
2 Canna Lilly
Ribbon or similar material (optional)
We will start with the Canna Lilies. Once they are in the container, you will want to tuck in the corners, so they look like this.
The next step is to add on the purple flowers. The purple-blue salvia adds hierarchy to the design, stepping down to the sweet pea then purple petunia. Try to arrange it where the salvia and petunia are spread out evenly from each other, and the sweet peat are arranged in the center.
Fun Fact! Did you know that fresh leaves or juices squeezed from Salvia leaves can be used to soothe insect bites?
Next, we will add the orange/yellow flowers! The orange Calendula and milkweed are placed in opposite corners and in between the purple flowers. The other 2 yellow Calendula is put positioned on the other 2 corners , opposite of each other.
Fun Fact! Did you know Milkweed attracts butterflies?
On the final step, we will add the 3 Knock out Roses to form a triangular form. To fill in any empty spots, add the 2 Citronella Geraniums. The leaf texture will accentuate the design even further. You Are Done! In just a few steps, you have created a vibrant floral arrangemnet that brightens up any room.
Fun Fact! Did you know that Citronella Geraniums have a citrusy scent, which is known to repel mosquitos?
We hope you enjoy making your flower arrangements!!
