RHYTHM IN GLASS

Rhythm in Glass

Chocolate cosmos blooms look fabulous in this art glass vase by Tracy Glover.

Ingredients:

7 stems fancy-leaf scented geranium (Pelargonium crispum), grown by Charles Little & Co.
3 stems pale apricot snapdragons (Antirrhinum majus), grown by Everyday Flowers
7 stems (tips only) light peach cockscomb (Celosia plumosa), grown by Charles Little & Co.
15 stems chocolate cosmos (Cosmos atrosanguineus), grown by Marigold and Mint
 
Chocolate Cosmos

Chocolate cosmos, grown by Katherine Anderson of Margold & Mint.

Vase:

 
8-inch tall x 4-inch diameter hand-blown art glass vase, designed by Tracy Glover
 
Design 101
Dark and light: When you place lighter or brighter flowers around darker floral elements, the viewer’s attention is drawn to the distinct details of both. Here, the chocolate cosmos looks even better because it is displayed next to lighter-hued companion flowers: pale apricot snapdragons.
