From the dramatic splendor of the artichoke and bold hues of Helichrysum to glorious carline thistles and the subtle character of grasses Flowers Cut and Dried is an unrivalled treasury of imaginative ideas and practical advice on creating beautiful dried flower arrangements for every room in the house.
Award-winning author and landscape artist Caroline Alexander shows readers how to mix and match different species to create arrangements and displays with a dazzling look all their own. With an artist's eye, she demonstrates how to experiment with more unusual flowers and plant materials from cheery sunflowers to fiery chili peppers. Readers learn, step by step, how to create fabulous wall hangings and magnificent fireplace displays, as well as presentation gift bouquets and long-lasting mementos of a very special wedding day.
Readers will also find out how to select the right flowers to complement any sort of fabric, furnishing, and style whether it be a soft period paint finish or a boldly printed modern chair cover. And for concise information on growing, picking, and drying your own flowers, a fascinating and practical directory covers over 60 of the most rewarding species to use.
Packed with insider tips, time-saving hints, stunning color photography, and special sections covering the historical and medicinal uses of dried flowers as well as current production methods, Flowers Cut and Dried is one of the most comprehensive and valuable guides available anywhere. It's a treat for the professional florist, the enthusiastic flower arranger, and anyone else who loves their home and garden.
